Default 2008 Legacy 2.5 weird startup idle..

Anyone have a new legacy 2.5? My GF just bought one (wish it was me, and it was a GT) and when you first start it up...the rpm's bounce about 4 times between 1k and 2k before settling about midway between the two and slowly falling.. It sounds like my old car did when it had a vacuum leak... Is this normal? Just wanna get an idea...the thing is brand new..its got 300 miles on it..shes going to bring it to the dealer soon but..just for ****s sake..any ideas?

Give it more time to break in. If its still doing it after 1000 miles, then probably take it in. Its more of a ECU related thing.

My wife's Forester did the same for a long time. So did my '04 TS, and in the 18 months I had it I don't think it ever really went away. Only did it when bone cold, not a big deal. Never took either car in, they both ran (and run) fine.

Now the Forester stays @ 2K for a minute, then slowly falls to 1K. You put it in drive and it's at 750.

alright cool....I didnt think it was really a big deal, like someone said, it runs great and as soon as it stops the bouncing for a minute its perfect.. Either way its a sweet car...wish i could trade in my 2000 RS for one....wait no i dont. Thanks everyone.

Sounds fairly normal, as long as it's just on startup when the engine's cold.
