Default Vehicle shudders?

When accelerating from a dead stop, vehicle (motor) tends to shudder or vibrate somewhat. Does anyone know what this could be?

Plugs, wires, motor mounts or a number of things. Is the check engine light on? How many miles does it have on it? Has the maintenance been kept up on it? Lots of more info needed.

Thank you for reply! Plugs and wires have been replaced. No check engine light or codes. Throttle body cleaned, PCV value replaced, and air filter replaced as well. I'm thinking motor mounts or torque struts too. I had a guy at the dealer tell me it may be CV joints. It's in the shop today so we'll see.
