Low rumble/vibration ? (newbie)

Hello, all just helped my daughter get her first car, a 2007 Focus SE Wagon 2.0 DOHC with 132,000 mi. Car is in great shape and appears well maintained, but at idle and speeds under 15mph a low rumble/vibration is heard more than felt, like a bass speaker. Is the this the nature of a small car and 4 cylinder or are the motor mounts bad ? It's going to the shop Monday because the dealership who did the last oil change (last owner) over tightened the oil plug and I'm afraid I'll bust the aluminum , it won't even budge with a breaker bar ! So while it's in there is there anything I should have them check out ? The mounts I can do myself just don't want to go replacing parts if it's not needed. -Thanks

Could it possibly be wheel bearings, suspension issues like a damaged spring, tyre allignment / camber / tracking?

Those all check out fine, plus it is heard/felt while in park.

My 06 has the same issue. It lost a bit if it's vibrating after I changed the sparks/oil/oil filter/fuel filter back to OEM. Next tho, and I assume it may be your issue too, I'm tackling the PCV valve/hose. In addition, I've got a pretty useless passenger side mount.
