The vibration while the car is idle could be a sign that the rubber in the engine or powertrain mounts are wearing out. I went to 2 different shops and was told that the vibration was normal, but the 3rd shop pointed out the problem right a way and replaced 2 of the 4 mounts. After that my car was so silent at idle I thought it stalled.
