Rough start when car switches from battery to engine??

Hey y'all!

I have a 2020 Insight EX and of course as soon as I hit 60,000 miles and my warranty expires, my car starts acting up. I noticed that when my car goes from the battery to the engine turning on, it shakes pretty badly. I dont have any codes coming up and nothing is knocking. Just know the normal feel of my vehicle and this is not it! Anyone else having this issue?

That's because when the engine is switched on due to a low IMA battery, there is a heck of a load put on the engine as it has to not only propel the vehicle but also high charge the IMA battery. IMHO
