sailor Yup, and a "2010" should be "fly by wire" so the pedal vibration could only be a harmonic vibration caused by something else.....

The "cupped tires" certainly COULD be the actual issue, as they are likely to vibrate quite a bit!

When the alignment gets done, suspension joints, wheel bearings & brakes should be checked at the same time. Anything worn & loose could contribute to the problem - without knowing the mileage it's impossible to guess how likely that would be, but such a check for loose components is normal before wasting time trying to align something too loose to accurately align!

Luck!

No plugs on our cars and the coils should more than likely be ok.
Any check engine light? You can pull a plus out and have a look at it to see if they need replacing.
Still doesn't explain that you'r gas pedal is vibrating. How's the motor running?

RAF_S197 If its a motor mount it should be under warranty

coldbear I'd start with a right motor mount. Takes about 20 minutes to change with MM sockets. That's your vib.
