Question: What is causing my car to vibrate/shake?
So my mazda3 has been experiencing this vibration at the front of the car which can be felt through the floor and the steering wheel at highway speeds 50-60 mph. There is also a slight pull to the left when on the highway. I took it to the dealer to get it diagnosed and they said the front tires need to be balanced and aligned. Had that done and it did little to nothing. I took a peek under the car and didn't find anything out of place or loose. Oh and there is a slight jiggle when turning the wheel but only when you turn it 10 degrees either direction. What could be the issue?

Sounds like a balance issue to me as well.
You can try rotating the front tires to the back. If it is a bad tire or tread wear pattern, the vibration will move with them to the back. If it stays the same, it is in the front end somewhere.
