    Lately I've noticed a vibration accompanied by a moderately high pitched buzzing/humming noise while using my AC on level 2 or higher on hot days. It is hard to notice while driving. But when parked, I can hear/feel it very well.

    I mostly feel it on the floorboard. Has anyone else had this issue? I'm under warranty for the next 7k miles. I'm wondering if I should get it looked at now or see if the problem worsens before taking it in.

    Well if you're under warranty the answer is obvious. Also had a mechanic once tell me that if the compressor is making a noise and vibrates a lot it may need a lubricant or some more freon. I've seen in other vechicles where as soon as the mechanic adds the freon the compressor on the a/c quiets down.
