Question: feel vibration under car

this started out small and has become a little louder these past few weeks. Notice it more at 65mph (do a lot of highway driving- about 25K per year)
had the differential gears (main bearing) replace 10 months ago at about 55K and it now has 78K. my fear is it is the same thing. Not sure if this would be covered under a reepair warranty of some sort. Shoull the differential wear out that fast? the fluid was changed when it was repaired. This KiA has been a lemon form the start.

If it is the same issue, contact the shop that did the work and see what their warranty period is. Even if it is out, they may cut you a deal since it is having issues so soon after the repairs.
