1999 Legacy Outback

Question Question about Subaru Idle

I just recently bought my first Subaru! It is a 1999 Subaru Legacy Outback. I had it inspected by a mechanic before I bought it and everything seemed to check out okay, but recently I have noticed that when I am stopped at a light, the car idles rather low and shakes a bit as if it may stall. Not enough that it was immediately noticable, which makes me wonder if this is normal for a Subaru, but enough to make me worry. Would anyone know what the problem may be or if this is normal? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have the same car as you, except silver. First of all, its a great car, not fancy, but great to get around in.

Mines automatic but I've never felt it shake before, even when its not in gear. It does Idle pretty low though once warmed up (500-700ish), which seems normal.
