How do the electronic motor mounts work?
By that description, I'd say your vibration is normal.

Sometimes in cold weather, my '08 will vibrate more because of a higher idle, but you'll just hear it in the dash or a-pillars, etc.

If it's not loud or you don't see anything moving, I'd say you're running normal.

The motor mounts aren't electronic, just one of the first things to check if you're seeing bad vibrations or shudders. Once those go, engine forces transfer to the frame and rest of the vehicle super easy.
