2014 Kia Soul - motor vibrates in lower gears

Motor vibrating when idling & in lower gears, but straightens out when finished shifting.

Some vibration is normal in 4 cylinder engines. I presume you’re aware of this and that you’re allowing for it. The vibration isn’t going away, merely shifting to a higher frequency. A cylinder with low compression could be the culprit. How many miles are on your Kia?
