    New Owner Question...

    So I've been driving my new 06 wagon for just over a week now and I love it. I did notice one thing that made me a little curious though. Generally the idle is very smooth but every once in a while I'll be at a stoplight and notice a slight rumble...just a little jostle which is noticable due to my extreme paranoia derived from years of driving a classic (65 malibu). I'm sure it's nothing but I figured I'd ask...is this normal or should the WRX be idling like a Lexus?

    thanks!

    My 06 does too, I am glad that this is the norm. I figured it was just how it idled, but there was a part of me kept wondering.
