Default 2004 PT CRUISER help

Hello every one.

Just got this 2004 PTC with 42K miles i really like it . Theres a small problem I think..
I can here and feel this vibration on the steering wheel and on the gas pedal unsure what it might be i drove it 350 miles from the dealer to my place i dont remember hearing this or feeling it before.

its still has 60 days warranty
I just dont know what to call them up on and telling them what the problem might be..

any ideas what my problem might be i know its a long shot just could use some ideas on what to look for.

I live in Valdez AK so i have to drive 350 miles to Anchorage to see a dealer mechanic.

Lots of things that can cause vibration. Could be as easy as one of the wheel weights fell off or you picked up a nail in the tire and it's loosing pressure. If something came loose or broke on that trip it could be a number of different things but I wouldn't drive 350 miles back to the dealer before finding out exactly what it might be. Don't mean to scare you but with 42K miles, anything could be wearing out like a motor mount, tie rod end or wheel bearing. See if a local garage will check it out. Some will do it for free.
