Hi, I have a 2012 , 2.2se it has a vibration/judder in any high gear when im trying to cruise at a steady speed, its like driving up hill in the wrong gear, drop it down one and its smoother, put it back up and it drones ???, a bit like a prop shaft mount or UJs, but the strangers thing is if I put it into cruise control it can hold it at the same speed without the vibration ????weird or what, Any ideas

Seems a bit odd that it should disappear when you engage cruise control but a lot of times ppl have reported it was the propshaft centre bearing. You could try removing the propshaft altogether so that it's just front wheel drive and see if the vibration disappears.
