Parking the car for 3 months shouldn't cause any problems... vibration felt while driving only. If the vibration is only during the car is moving, tires may have gotten a flat spot. What tires are on the car? Parking for 3 months shouldn't cause flat spot on the tires, but it's possible I guess.

+1. I have Yoko Avid Envigar and if I park my car for a week I get steering and seat vibration. It goes away after driving few miles
