    shaking during idle

    Hey guys. I have a 2011 WRX that up to now only has 300 miles on odometer. I got an episode that during idle (whether on traffic or parking garage) I got this weird feeling that the car shakes-- not too much but you can feel it nonetheless.

    RPM is totally normal like 750. I can feel her shake because eveything is off (radio/heater/etc), so no daydreaming/imagining things here.

    any guess?

    If it's a single episode, you can't fix it -- it now works.

    If it's several episodes, take the car in.

    If it's routine, it's almost certainly normal. The motor will make the car judder a bit every so often, because of the way it's mounted and how the exhaust is routed. My 02 "shakes" and has done so since new.
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929

    i like the shake too. would it not also be because of the horizontal pistons? puts a different shake to the car than most inline 4's
