    06 WRX bucking under light throttle

    My car started bucking a little bit on my way to work this morning.

    I was at part throttle, light acceleration in 3rd gear between 2-4000 rpm when I felt it first. It's also present in 2nd gear.

    Any ideas as to what it could be?

    The car is stock, with the exception of an SPT Intake. Has 104k miles but the local Subaru Dealer said it's in great shape.

    I just bought it two weeks ago and don't want to deal with issues already.
