Do you have a fifth gen? When you start your car does it just vibrate for a few seconds? Thats nothing to worry about just the fuel pump priming.

Re: Shaking and Rumbling

When it does that, watch your idle. If your idle is dropping a little bit (like from 750 down to 5-600), that's probably what it is. Mine does that occasionally and my dash rattles like crazy, especially in the cold. I would say it's nothing to worry about.

Re: Shaking and Rumbling

Like I said, watch the idle, I'm willing to bet it's just the idle dropping a bit and causing everything to vibrate, especially in the cold. Absolutely nothing to worry about.
