No, it is not the lane departure system. Thanks for your thoughs anyway. Will post here when The garage solves it.

Just a thought, it’s not when you get close to the side of the road/lane? The steering wheel sometimes vibrates rather than steering away.
I hope you've hit the nail on the head. They all do that!

I have the same issue. I have a T3 manual and feel vibrations through the steering wheel and foot pedals. Passenger can feel it too. Again, only when on dual carriageway or motorways at speed. My dealer has no idea either. Let me know if you're find a solution. :?

Sadly no solution yet.

The problem is unrelated to engaged gear/rpm, even neutral gives same symptoms. Vibrations are just one part of the problem. Main issue is the rhythmic resonating sound (like wind chatter through an slightly opened window) in sync with the vibration.

Whether this is cabin pressure, aerodynamic or vibration related I don't know. But after 10 days in the garage, I'm getting the idea Volvo is unable or unwilling to solve the problem.
