Hi, is the vibration at idle, or while driving?
When is it worse
can you elaborate a bit more?
at idle and driving
Okay, I would check the motor mount
They are common to fail on this vehicle
I guess at idle because there isn't road noise going on
Well make sure
if the vibration isn't there at idle as well you could have an out of balance tire
I would just inspect the motor mounts anyway
I believe there are two mounts they were checked and said to be fine. There is a lot of vibration at idle.
Then you might need to have this TSB in specific checked.

Also, is there a check engine light on?
Yes check engine light is on
The problem could be engine related as well.
I would advise getting the engine codes scanned.
Autozone will scan them free (AS do most part places)
If you can get the codes scanned and get back to me, we can determine if an engine issue could be causing this problem.
Cool I will be waiting
