Why does my car shake so much when im stopped and my foot is on the brake as if it was a massage chair? I guess you can say. It's been doing this for a while any ideas?

is the check engine light on? if so its probably a failed ignition coil maybe 2 or a big vacuum leak. if not check your motor mounts especially the passenger side one that sits just to the side of the engine and is supposed to be liquid filled rubber, check the rubber for breaks and/or leaking fluids if any are seen that is your issue and the mount will need to be replaced that mount fails alot on these cars its a known issue.

yeah, i bet your motor mount has failed and you are feeling the excessive vibration from the engine moving.
