    Little vibration while idling?

    I have a 2015 wrx with about 6k miles, and I noticed while I'm idling I feel a little vibration every now and then. Just wondering if that's normal or not?

    Is your defrost on or is the HVAC set to auto?

    I'm sure you're overthinking things.

    I've heard these cars tend to shake a little from time to time, though I wouldn't expect it from one so new. I know my 02 wrx does it.
    I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

    Engines Vibrate, Horizontally opposed (Boxer) engines DEFINITELY vibrate. I'm guessing it's normal.
    The Anti-N00b. Use "Search", YES, you need a tune. NO, you don't need a BOV. Don't try to make you car shoot fire, and change your freaking oil.

    I'm also throwing my vote in for normal. These engines vibrate a little more than a non-boxer engine. It will be worse in the cold and on startups.

    Yes, that requires a tune...
    Read your owners manual.

    I also agree with the paranoid because you dont want anything wrong with a new car. Is it only at warm up or operating temp?
