So, do you feel a vibration, in the seat of your chair as well??? Probably balance of the rear tires.

I would have the tires checked for balance.. When my seats where doing that, the rear balance was out. but other then that. just normal movement for road conditions??

Almost certainly tire balance...or a bad tire, or a bent rim (less likely). Check for obvious damage and look over the tread for any bead warping. Winter tires are notoriously bad for maintaining balance as they wear. I have a slight shake on the right side rear headrest at highway speed and notice there is a wheel weight missing on the right rear. Will report back after I get it re-balanced.

I noticed ours doing on on day 1 driving home from the dealership. Given that the dealership was several hundred miles from my house, I didn’t turn around to have them look at it.

Tires have been balanced, new wheels and tires installed, seats still shake. In my case it is not a tire balance problem. Again, I have not looked into it but I suspect it is a design flaw and the seat backs shake at the hinge point. Looking into it is quite low on the priority list but I will eventually find that round tuit.
