Thx for the feedback. The car only has 44,000 miles. would it be normal that the plugs and wires need changing at such low mileage? would poor timing / plugs show up as a code in the diagnostic computer?
PS: I also notice that when the car idle is rough and i'm coming to a full stop/traffic light it sometimes feels like the car is about to stall.

I am having the same problem. i called Toyota and they had the dealership call. The person i had talk to stated that this is normal for the 4 cyl. He also stated that there is a notice they received from Toyota that this is the norm. I tell you if the car was shaking when i bought it I would have never purchased it. Please let me know if you find a solution. .

Sorry for the late reply. I've sent an email to the delaership that sold the car new. Waiting for feedback to see if the previous owner had the same issue. Peter

I noticed that you mentioned that the noise/vibration was not present when you bought the car. Can you tell me when the noise/vibration developed?

bought camery new has 42000miles on now started getting noise from what appears to be bottom of engine or exhaust,,,took it to dealership 5 times in past 4 weeks =... they say itsnormal, i say it wasn't that way when i bought it or before now,,,,no over heating,, no check engine light, no loss of power, but plenty of growling/groaning noise.. they did injector cleaning service, checked water pump, did air induction and throttle body cleaning,,,adjusted valves,, changed filters,,,adjusted belts.. nothing changed,,, so i took it to muffler shop,,, put new muffler on,,,, they checked exhaust system couldn;t find any leaks. by the way did u know cleaning the intake and throttle body is maintance not covered under warrenty.... any way still the same,,, I have no clue what to think of next!

I had a maintenance check done today and they cleaned the throttle and injectors....$200+ but the noise is still there. I can't explain it. Very frustrating!!
But the mechanic told the person who was managing my visit that he heard the noise and suggested the cleaning I just mentioned. It's nice to hear they acknowlewdge it but I think Toyota may be hiding something. I will write a letter to the president and CEO of Toyota.

I have similar problem..did you write Toyota? What was outcome ? I think if we join together on all our cases involving rough idle, stalling and engine noise, we might have a better chance with "Goliath".

Reporting your issues to the NHTSA is the best way to amalgamate complaints about a particular vehicle problem:
