Hello,
When I step on my accelerator,
the driver's side shakes increasingly,
like I'm driving on rough pavement on that side:
thump, thump.

Any ideas?

k.h.
Then don't step on the accelerator! ;)

I would look at the drive axles/cv joints. Is this a joke?

The car shakes on the driver's side under acceleration.
Soon as I remove my foot from the accelerator, the car stops shaking.
Additionally, this problem manifests itself, then goes away.

I was driving down the 5 earlier, and the car just started shaking.
The shaking would increase w/ the amount of gas given.
This was verifiable for miles. Then, the car stopped reproducing the problem.

The cause isn't pavement. Any ideas? I'm totally lost.

k.h.

khoerling, I did a search on this subject because mine began to vibrate much more often. Turns out it may be our axles. I also went and checked my axles and noticed they were loose with greese every where.

The boots have no tears ,they are just loose. check yours it may be the same thing.

They say the search button is your friend and I have to agree.

Just an FYI,

My driverside boot tore, but not bad yet, so I bought reman axles. After I installed the axles, the damn car shakes only at acceleration. I got pissed and cleaned/repacked-grease/new-booted my own old axle and reinstalled it. SMOOOth. I retured the reman axle cuz they were bad.

What up Keith, I had the exact same problem, it was the trans mount, just replace it it you will be fine, I posted a DIY so you can buy the part and put it in yourself and save some $$$$$$.
