Yes, I have seen this issue many times. There is an excellent explanation as well. Break in period. If you drive a Renegade with under 30 or so miles (seems to be the sweet spot) that hasn't been warmed up and driven hard then it will vibrate like a paint shaker. I have test driven many of them that have almost suddenly smoothed out to a very smooth idle (for this 2.4L engine) They are a fairly rough running engine to begin with however if broken in properly (sorry folks not the old 500-2000 miles) they will vibrate. By about 50-60 miles these engine should be completely broken in and running as smooth as they are going to.

Hope this helps. :D
