engine shakes

Shortly after I leased this car, I have noticed that the engine shakes significantly in park and idle. It will do it weather the A/C is on or off. Feels like a small misfire or engine mount. Car only has 8,000 miles on it with regular maintenance done. I have taken it in twice to Kia only for them to tell they cannot duplicate the issue and that if it happens again come back. Well it has happened several times since, and they claim nothing is wrong. The engine also sounds like it has no oil in it. It ticks like crazy and I have checked the oil and it is plum full. If you look directly at the engine while it's running, you can see that its abnormally shaking. I am almost done with my lease and I will never get a KIA again..

Update from Sep 27, 2016: 9/2016 Update. 2.0 GDI engine had a technical service bulletin for an engine alternator pulley that is bad, causing the engine to shake. This has been fixed and the car does not have anymore issues. Pretty happy that warranty covered everything. Car now has 10k miles
