Shaking Subaru when stopped

Hello, I am writing about a 1996 Subaru Legacy - Green (if that affects anything!)

We maintain it well and have taken it to a dealship and three different local repair shops and the problem can't be found.

And here it is:

The car SHAKES, often very irritatatingly, when STOPPED and in Drive.

If we shift the car into neutral or park, the shaking stops instantly.

Reverse does shake but much less than DRIVE.

It happens in all of the Drive gears (automatic).

The Motor mounts (both front and back?) have been replaced with genuine subaru parts.

We have taken to putting the car in neutral at every stoplight (which in NYC is all the time) because the shaking is so unpleasant.

We do like this car, and get fairly good milage, so we'd like to get this fixed.

Any ideas?
