a bad universal joint maybe, you didn't say what year your car is. Take the car to a driveshaft specialist for checking. Replacing universal joints is easy and not expensive, the Series 3 XJ-6 uses General Motors universal joints. The other possible cause is more complicated, having to do with the shafts on each side of the differential....

Could be a tire problem, maybe a steering problem. i had vibration in my car when I first bought it, and it ended up costing a fortune to fix the steering.

and that means the question is in the wrong forum! you can check with the model/year forum for your car.

but regardless, it is a pity that cars so new are showing so many signs of bad quality. I'm not trying to brag here, but my 1984 XJ-6 does not have a fraction of the problems I see here in newer cars. The Series 3 XJ-6 of 1983 thru 1985 appear to be the most reliable, probably due to a man called Sir John Egan, who took over Jaguar quality control in those years.
