Hyundai Getz vibration on acceleration

The wife's Getz has a funny vibration which is felt through the pedal and steering when accelerating. Usually comes on around 2000 revs. It's a light vibration but enough to make the plastic panels on the dash resonate and be annoying.It's also present when stationary when revving the engine and the clutch pedal is depressed.

The check engine light sometimes comes on briefly and goes out. Checked fluid levels and put about two pints water in the radiator.

Check the coolant level again. because if the head gasket has gone and is leaking into the combustion chambers, that would explain it.
