Default Roughness at speed

Hi...have a 2013 Impreza Sport with CVT and the stock Yokohama tires. Currently car has 12500 miles. I've noticed as time goes on and the miles accumulate there seems to more "roughness" in the drivetrain. I'll try to explain this better...if you're going 65-70 mph and have your foot flat on the floor you feel a somewhat harmonic vibration...the car and steering wheel are not shaking and it is not severe...it kind of feels like a tire out of balance but they don't appear to be. If I apply the brakes I feel this same harmonic imbalance a bit in the brake pedal...but it is NOT pulsating. I'm trying to determine if it is the tires or something inherent in the AWD system. Anyone notice in their vehicles?

I have the 5MT tranny, but regardless, I don't notice this behavior. My Impreza is a 2012 with 21k miles.

i dont get that either. could you go to the dealership and drive a new one around and see if you get the same feeling? or find a fellow subaru owner close and take a ride in their car. Thats really the only way to determine if there is something really wrong

Maybe an issue with alignment?
Or maybe dirt stuck to one (or more) of the rims?

Id say this is the best course of action. Its hard to judge what you mean, I don't notice any obvious vibrations but maybe Im used to it by now.

If at over 65mph and you feel the vibration on the steering wheel, mostly your car is out of alignment. Some users reported realignment is cover under the warranty.
