Strange vibration when in drive and stopped???

I have a 2011 Escape 4 cylinder with less than 300 miles. It has a strange vibration when in drive and I am stopped. It goes away if I put it in neutral, park, or reverse and it goes away as soon as I start moving. I can feel and hear something vibrating and it sounds like it is coming from somewhere in the engine compartment.
Obviously, I am going to take it back to the dealer this week, but would like to know if anyone else has had this problem and fixed it so I can point them in the right direction.
Otherwise, the Escape is great - 100 times better than the Equinox it replaced :thumb:

Thanks Guys
Great Forum you have here,
I feel the vibration in the brake pedal and through the seat. It's not huge by any means, more annoying than anything and it can be felt from the passenger seat as well. I checked everything under the hood and everything seemed tight. The funny thing is that when you put it in reverse and drive, the rpm's drop slightly but it can only be felt while in drive :confused: It is smooth as silk in reverse with no vibration.

Of course it might just be me. I have never owned a 4 cylinder vehicle, most of my vehicles have been Ford V8 diesel trucks. Maybe this is a normal 4 cylinder thing???????
