Slight vibration advice

Hi All,

I'm a month into Mercedes ownership (E250) I've noticed that when car is cruising at low revs and you start to gently accelerate so engine comes under some load I can feel a slight vibration through floor and drivers seat. Nothing through pedals or steering wheel. Anyone any idea what this may be? Car is two years old with 13k miles.

Thanks

As above: Engine and transmission mounts including prop shaft donuts/flex couplings.

As above, torque converter could be the culprit.

Or DUAL MASS FLYWHEEL If the car is stop / start it may have already done the equivalent of 3 + times the mileage in terms of engine starts/stops. Design may have been beefed up of course.

Flywheel in an auto? (assuming it's an auto)

Gear changes seem fine it's more when engine comes under load.

Prop shaft at wrong angle, due to say suspension fatigue could cause this. Mb have the tools to test the angle and adjust.

Sounds like the lock up clutch slipping in torque converter, but on a two year old car with hardly any miles?
