My first guess would be a cylinder miss.
Is the check engine light on ?
Have you checked the computer for trouble codes ?

SOURCE: front end shaking on 2004 jetta

Are the wheels stock, or aftermarket? Is the engine missing maybe under a load?
Had an '02 Jetta TDI I put fancy rims on it, the rims weren't made for the torque the car put out under acceleration, and were actually twisting in there centers causing a severe vibration! Put the steel wheels back on, "Fixed It!"

It sounds like you might need to replace your motor mounts, or get a tier allignement done. The allignment you cannot do yourself but the motor mounts you can this requires you to place a jack under you engine and undoing the motor mounts then replace them and take away jack.

SOURCE: 1992 Chevy S-10 Pickup 4.3L 6 Cyl. Engine sputters

SOUNDS LIKE MAYBE FUEL FILTER NEEDS REPLACE, AND OR EVEN SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES. A GOOD TUNE UP. IF YOU RUN LOW OCTANE FUEL YOU MAY TRY A CAN OF OCTANE BOOST, OBTAINED THRU THGE LOCAL PARTS STORE, IN WITH THE NEXT FILL UP. IT WOULD PROB BE A GOOD IDEA TO GET SOME INJECTOR CLEANER AND PUT IT IN WITH YOUR GAS TO SEE IF THAT HELPS.

Tune up spark plugs, wires, check fuel filter, etc... Check distributor, change transmission fluid and coolant. If you need a new distributor I would try looking for a used one online.

There's many reasons this can happen, but start simple. Fuel pump may be failing. Usually under load they can not supply the fuel the engine is demanding. (Up hill acceleration is a classic example). change the fuel filter first, if that doesn't not correct the problem, test fuel system pressure. (:

If the engine is misfiring and that is the source of the shaking then the check engine light will be flashing like crazy, other wise it is not the engine causing this, I know was a Ford tech for 25 years.
