Feels like rough engine idle, started occurring at around 80,000 miles. For example door locks buttons vibrate and rattle in the door while at an idle. -- Tuneups did not help nor carburetor type cleaners. Finally replaced passenger side engine mount at about about 90,000 miles, fixed the problem. Rough idle feeling back again, now at 180,000 miles. I feel it in the steering wheel again at idle. The 90,000 mile replacement motor mount was a dealer original equipment replacement part. I was thinking about purchasing a generic replacement after market mount. After viewing a YouTube video and then reading the review comments, his after market parts were too hard and transmitted the vibration apparently worse than when he started the project. Looks like I will have to go back to the dealer for more substandard parts that work for awhile again, not a plus for Toyota although it's a nice car.

Very rough idling turned out to be mounting bolt failure as diagnosed and repaired by a shop.

Found by Toyota service and fixed by them

Worse with acceleration and up hill. Shaking happens at all speeds, sometimes holding a certain rpm helps smooth the ride. Down hill coast is terrible too, with a little gas shaking diminishes. Driven this way for about 15000 miles. Currently at 218000.
