01 VW Jetta Vibration Problem

01 VW Jetta 1.8t Automatic. When the car is in drive or reverse there is a vibration that can be felt thru the steering wheel and brake. When in neutral or park the vibration stops. I put regular unleaded in it and i heard jettas will knock on anything less than mid-grade. Is this vibration normal?

Check the motor mounts. They might be worn or loose which can cause vibration felt when the engine is reved up or running at higher rpms than at idle.

    I have a friend reved up the rpm and applied the brake while I was looking at the engine, I saw the driver side engine move up about 1/2 inch when he reved in D, and the engine on the passenger side not moving at all when he reved in R. Does that mean my driver side mount is bad? For further inspection, I jacked up my car and try to look at the mount from under, I can not see or tell the the engine mount is crack or bad by visualize.

Has to be a drive axle,most likely an inner joint,should be able to feel the play if one is bad (jacked up to let the wheel spin freely).
Also. If the front suspension is weak,or lowered, the CV axle will bottom out in the inner plunge cup and make a terrible vibration.

Vibration felt in front floorboard


Yes it can but the dealer would have found it on the test drive if they test drove the vehicle. The only other causes for the vibration I can think of should have been found on inspection as well. Check your bushings and mounts for the sway bar and your tie rod ends as well.
