    Near stalling or idle issue

    Hey guys, I wanted to ask for some advice. Two weeks ago I bought a 2012 wrx with 19k, and last week I have noticed that at times and now more often when I downshift to neutral on a stop or red light the car like loses power or drops down to 500 rpm, even lower, like if it is going to stall. Plus at time , especially in first and second gear the car bogs or jerks back and forth when I'm in low gear at around 2000 to 2500 rpm. It's happening more frequently. I went to the dealer a week ago for an oil change and had recommend an fuel injector cleaning service. Could it be that the injectors are clogged or dirty? Or is it an electrical drainage problem? Any advice would be appreciated? Thanks

    Dirty injectors on a new car isn't easy to do anywhere in the developed world. I'd be very surprised if it's clogged injectors. 19K and 2 years old is under warranty. I'd take it in to the dealer.

    Any mods on the car that might not be tuned for?
