Great gas mileage! Terrible steering wheel vibrations and ride harshness!

Gas mileage is fantastic BUT there is way too much vibration in the steering wheel at some speeds that's really annoying. It happens around 30-35 mph and again around 65-70 mph. Makes it very annoying to drive long distances. Ride quality is very stiff causing you to feel every bump and ripple in the road. The dealer updated the engine computer and rebalanced the wheels but the vibrations are still there. I'm now working with the factory rep to find out what's causing the vibrations. This is my first Honda and maybe my last if they don't fix the vibration problems.
gas mileage, back up and side view cameras,
this would be a really nice car if there was lot less vibration and ride harshness
Hi, did you ever resolve your vibration issue? Was it happening at around 1200 RPM or so by chance? I just got a '15 CRV with the CVT and it has steering vibration at very low RPM when either cruising around town or gently accelerating from a stop.
