    New - Just bought a new 2008 Impreza WRX

    Hey guys,

    Have owned Hondas my whole life and decided I wanted an AWD turbo far happy! (only drove 125 miles LOL).

    Well I'll be lurking to the boards to learn about this - Do all new 2008 have a "shaky idle"?

    Welcome. I have an 08 too, got it in Oct. As for the shakey idle, I haven't had that problem. Does it do it all the time? only when it is cold? after hard driving?

    Give your engine some time to start bedding in before you worry about the idle (unless it's causing problems). If you are really concerned then ask Subaru about it - the joys of a new car warranty
