I hate to be the bear of bad news, but this problem is going to be a belt in one of the tires that has separated. You will need to replace the tire, or both of the front tires. You should always replace tires as a set of two or four, unless you are replacing with a good used tire, then it is ok to replace just the one, but you may have a slight pull to one direction or the other.

Do you get the vibration when just driving down the road, or when you have your foot on the brakes?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
when i get on the freeway no breaking . it does it almost every time but sometimes it it does not do it. it does it about 8 times out of 10.
Expert:  Kalamykid replied 2 months ago.

How long ago did you have the brake job done, and where the rotors replaced or turned?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
about 8 or 9 months and yes they replaced the rotors
Expert:  Kalamykid replied 2 months ago.

And how long have you had this problem?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
i got the car a year ago .them took good care of it about 2 months after i got it i had the work done
Expert:  Kalamykid replied 2 months ago.

When did the vibration start?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
it started from the start before and after the work was done
Expert:  Kalamykid replied 2 months ago.

Then the problem has to be in the suspension. This can be the ball joints, tie rod ends, control arms and control arm bushings. I would take it to a good alignment shop and have them inspect all of the suspension.
