When the car is at a complete stop and you turn your steering wheel completely one way and completely the other the car will start vibrating towards the back. The dealer hase told me that all scion tc 2006 do the same thing due to the hydrylic pressure. Does anyone know if this is true? If so is there anything that can be done?

Whya re you turning the wheel while the car is not moving? I wouldn't recommend it. Even if you can just move a little but it will help.

Uhh.... never done that before. I know if you turn it while stopped the engine will tend to rev.. but it does this on all cars.

Someone somewhere told me that it's not a good thing for the power steering to keep the steering wheel turned *all the way*. When you hit the "limit", just turn the steering wheel in the opposite direction just a notch until the vibration disappears.

very true, its in the manual. pretty much if you keep it cranked to one side for a long time, you could blow your power steering pump and possibly damage other parts of your car/engine bay...
