Depending on the vibration, this can be caused by broken engine mounts. The mounts are meant to absorb the vibration of the engine as it runs. When mounts break, the rubber that absorbs the vibrations can break off completely and leave metal to metal contact. This causes you to feel all of the engines vibrations, and at times may even sound like a rattle. Your vehicle has three engine mounts and two transmission mounts. A certified mechanic will be able to check these and determine why your car is vibrating.
