steering wheel and front dashboard vibration when starting car and in drive!

Asked by May 31, 2015 at 03:29 PM about the 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently bought a used car, 2002 Mitsubishi lancer automatic. When I start the car and in parking gear everything seems ok, but when I shift to drive, then I feel vibration in the steering wheel and also dashboard vibration. After I release brake and start driving the vibration subsides, but as soon as I apply brake like at the traffic light, then I experience the front of the car vibrating.
When I took the car for oil change, the mechanic didn't tell me that there was anything wrong with the car. The car drives just fine. I was wondering if it's just the engine that's unevenly mounted! what could cause the excess vibration of the steering and dashboard section? The vibration is not that big though, but still it's a discomfort.
