I notice it occasionally in my 2004 FXT, but it's very subtle. My wife's 2006 OBS is a different story though. When you let off the gas in gear (especially 2nd & 3rd gears), there's an abrupt drag on the drivetrain. Also, when you step back on the accelerator, it lurches again...it's not a smooth transition between accelerating and coasting. I tend to agree that it's "normal", but it can be rather annoying.
Do you have a turbo? I'm thinking it may be more prevalent in the non-turbo cars, at least in my experience. I'll have to drive my friend's Forester X and see if she has the same issue.
