This vehicle has never been driven hard in it's 44,000 miles. No viberation until you put the car in drive.

    Sounds like a misfire, which will usually get more pronounced when you put the car in gear. How long since your last tune up service? Is there a Check Engine Light on, by chance?

    Plugs were changed recently and a vacuum line fixed, did not help the problem

    Mine does the same....I have a 2000 Echo with only 22,000 miles on it. Runs smoothly overall, but it vibrates/runs a little rough when at a stop light. No answer yet, but working on it.
