Gear shift big vibration

Hello Everyone,
I ask you if the gear shift vibration (on the left and on the right, up and down) are natural. Because my Fiat 124 spider has this "issue" whenever the road surface is a bit dirt. Fiat mechanic tell me it's usual and nothing to repair.
Thanks, be patients about my english

I think you will notice more vibration in the gearshift due to mazda's PPF design. ( Power plant frame) It connects the transmission to the differential. It is one of the wonderful things about the design that makes you and the powertrain so connected and solid, but the downside is that it can transmit any movement of the differential to the transmission and then to the gearshift.
There is a chance that there could be something wrong but that could be verified with a test ride in another manual transmission car.

Let us know what you find out.

And welcome to the forum!:)

I don't find the vibration to be a downside. It reminds me how direct this transmission is. I think it is great.
Ditto! Make me feel more connected with the "machine"
