A vibration in the front end of a Volvo S60 while accelerating is due to imbalanced tires. Swap the tires until the right combination is achieved.

Either your front end or your tires needs to be aligned.

Shaking when accelerating and braking show a front end issue. Check the lug nuts to make sure your tires are bolted on tight. Check for play in front end components, like the wheel bearings and tie rod ends. While possibly causing the vibration, the front brakes usually only cause a shake when braking.

The transmission is not shifting in and out of gear or your front joint is going bad

One would really have to hear it in order to determine for certain. Are there any particular conditions existing in which the humming occurs? Wheel bearings are a possibility.

understeer is when a vehicle tries to go straight on , common in front wheel drive cars when accelerating and turning at the same time Oversteer is where the rear of the car slides out common when accelerating hard in a rear wheel drive

wheel bearings are going bad, need to change your hub assembly

Your front, left or right axle needs to be replaced.

We had a humming bird nest in the tree in our front yard. On a branch about 8 feet up.

it would depend on what kind of humming sound you are referring too. If you are over due on a transmission service or what not it will humm at higher speeds and as you slow down the humming slows with it, or if your brakes have gone bad it will make a humming sound once you hit over 30 mph. it could be a lot of things but those are some options to check out

If its a front wheel drive, your cv joint. Another likely cause could be loose lug nuts on your wheel.

Cause it is a front wheel drive vehicle.?

not usually. warped rotors will cause a vibration during braking.
