2004 Cavalier Vibrates

I just bought a used 2004 Chevy Cavalier (automatic) and I've noticed that "just above" idle it vibrates a little. When I'm slowing down just before it is completely stopped it vibrates the dashboard and just as I'm taking off it does the same thing. It is very slight and as the air conditioner is on, it will even vibrate while sitting idle. Is this normal for a 2004 Cavalier or is something worse in the making?

1998 honda crv vibrates when starting out

Increased vibration from a vehicle indicates worn out engine supports. This vibration often disappears when revving the engine high, but is very noticeable at low revs.

You can have these inspected and possibly replaced to reduce the vibration cominf from your engine.

Hope this helps.

The car vibrates when it idles. It vibrates so

sounds like it has a bad motor mount, once the rubber wears out, it is metal to metal and there is nothing to coushin the vibrations from the engine.
