If it seems like a vibration more than an a actual noise, it's your engine mounts. Mine are bad and it vibrates from 40mph to around 50. As the mounts get worse, the noise will get louder. My car is 12 years old and my mechanic said for my type of in town light driving, if I can stand the noise, it isn't a must that they be changed. However, there's a change it could vibrate something else loose.
