Why does the car shake when driving at low speeds?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Cornelia, Sounds like you may have a possible misfire, replace the plugs and wires if necessary. You may need to have it hooked to a diagnostic scan tool and see if you can isolate a malfunctioning coil as well. Another possibility may be your motor mounts, over time the rubber mounts can soften and cause a vibration at low speeds. AJ Pierce
