Default 1993 Camry V6 XLE Vibrates when coming a stop/traffic light when its cold

It tends to do that when the car is outside and it gets cold. But after 10
minutes, it doesn't do that. Everything is perfect, any suggestions what
could it be. The guy over the repair shop said he couldn't find anything
wrong with it, he said leave it over night so I can test it in the
morning.

Thanks!

In colder weather, the tires can develop flats where they have been
contacting the ground.. In turn this can cause a slow vibration as the car
speeds up or slows down. This effect soon goe away after the first 5 mins or
so.

Try swapping all four wheels and tires with a known - good set.
As Jason said, it looks like at least one of the wheels
has a small balance problem. I think it corrects itself with
rising temperature.
