CVTs mated to 4 cylinder engines will cause noticeable vibration. This phenomenon affects Nissan, Toyota, Subaru, etc. I will say, the '17 Nissan Altima that I rented a couple of weeks ago, was rather smooth, and only had minor vibration at low speeds, or at an idle. It wasn't bothersome because I've driven CVT equipped cars in the past. My point is there isn't a "fix" for the vibration, as it's a harmless characteristic of the CVT and engine combination.
