My 2014 5-speed SE runs very smoothly at any speed over 1000 rpm, but has a heavy and annoying vibration at idle speed--worse if A/C is on. It makes the center radio stack shake and buzz! The previous owner told me he had installed an aftermarket 'stiffer' rear engine mount, but didn't mention the other two. Is this endemic to these cars or should I be replacing the mounts with OEM-spec ones (car has 94K miles). I'm not trying to 'enhance' the car--I'm older and like smoothness and quiet! Thanks for your suggestions.

No, not common at all and I would at least get the engine mounts looked at. Replacing one with a different type may affect the other non replaced mounts. A stiffer mount is sometimes more susceptible to cracking or breaking.
