Default 2009 camry, some thiny vibration

Hi,
I just bought 2009 Camry with 18000 miles on her.
I4 2.4l engine.
This is my 1st japanese car ever.
I have a question. Perhaps I am too sensitive about cars, but here you go.
I like the car handling. Is a little louder that my previous Buick Lacrosse.
I don't like in Camry that when I'm on intersection waiting for green light,
car is idling, gear in drive mode I can feel very, very small vibration on
steering wheel and the seat so seat is kind a tingling me. These vibration
are very small. If I put cat to neutral these vibration disappears. On my
Buick I couldn't feel anything. I was not even sure if engine is working.
Is that normal or there is something to be concern?
thanks
bolo

Just a guess, but could it be just the difference in "feel" between a
V6 and an I4?

It could be a number of things, as mentioned, the mass produced I4
will not be as quiet and smooth as a V6. If the vibration happens only
in gear then I wonder if the engine/transmission mounts are up to it.
The Aisin U-series transmissions haven't got that great of a record
but should be adequate in typical driving. I wonder if a new strainer
and fluid may help, but transmission service needs to be done very
precisely. Even dealer techs sometimes can't get it right.

You could be right, but vibrations are vibrations. This could be just me
too. When comes to cars I'm just too sensitive to perfections. This a
course
I will check it at dealer.

Its probably normal, but if you try high octane gas and it runs better
it needs a tuning, but at 18000 that doesnt seem likely, but 18000 on
an 09, it sounds like it was a rental car you bought, you wouldnt want
to buy any rental I have driven.

What's the engine rpm at idle when the transmission is in D?

It's kind of disheartening that they never fixed that with the
Camry four automatics. Even with new motor mounts, our '95 sedan feels
more like a Yugo while idling in gear at lights. I shift into Neutral
when possible until the light goes yellow.

cleaning the throttle body and mass air flow sensor may help. If you
dont know how to do this buy or borrow a chilton manual and DIY. I do
this every 6 months and it does make a difference in the way my 2000
tacoma idles. But it does sound like motor mounts. You should be
covered by bumper to bumper warranty till 36000 miles. Find a toyota
dealer you can trust.

LOL, I have to concure with this statement. I had my rental for a week and a
half, put 1100 miles on it and rode it hard the whole way. The 2009 Mazda 6
isn't a go cart like the Corollas are, but they are still a little fun to
drive.

It's NOT you.
I have a 2009 Camry 4cyl(only4000 Mi.-bought new) that is doing what you are
complaining about. Prior to this car I drove my wifes 2003 Camry 4cyl(Both
the '03 and the '09 use the same engine, but diff trans.) and traded in my
1997 Camry 4 cyl for this one. Neither of those 2 cars was as noisy as this
one(mostly wind noise at high speed), nor did they vibrate as much as this
one at a stop light(in gear), the only time that I felt *any* vibrations was
when the AC kicked in.
Admittedly the vibration is light, and you can stop it by shifting to "N",
But it's annoying when your previous car was smooth.
Personally, my bigger complaint is the wind noise, but I guess I'll have to
learn to live with that.
I don't think Toyotas are built with as much attention to details as they
use to.
