2001 Toyota Avalon xls: vibration felt in steering, typically above 60 mph on interstate or braking going down a hill. Aligned front end, re-balanced tires/wheels, replaced tires, replaced front rotors twice within a few thousand miles, brake pads, caliper pins, regreased caliper pins with appropriate pin grease, ensured proper air in tires - none of this has addressed the vibration. Noted a fair number of other Avalon owners searching the internet on the words '2001 Toyota Avalon vibration'. Vehicle has not sustained any damage, such as jumping a curve or being struck by another vehicle. No other suggested repairs from Toyota.
