What engine do you have? A common problem on your vehicle is engine mounts. The are hydraulic and over-time they look out oil and eventually can cause harsh vibrations.

If you vehicle is TDI, you should check your alternator one-way pulley.

I agree with F41_guy on the mounts. I own this exact vehicle and my doors would vibrate with the engine during stops (nothing too loud but noticable) and would then ease on take off, same would happen as backing up or changing gears for the shaking. Quoted by two mechanics, both said "motor mount" but one said to just replace the Front rather than all 4 which is costly of course. Helped quite a bit, now when I reverse there isn't a hesitation shake or vibration. Always spend the time on one import mechanic, get the info and start back in the forum/call around for other opinions when you get an answer.
