Hey, my new XT occasionally experiences a rough idle and twice now at start up it is REALLY rough, as if it were going to stall out.

~3K on the odometer, nothing but 91+ octane in the tank.

Anyone experience this? Is it a common issue?

Mine seems rough too on cooler mornings.

I'm going to ask them to check timing when I take it in for the 3000 mile oil change. Right now, I'm under 800 miles.

Does it smooth out after about 30 seconds or stay rough? Mine starts with all sorts of clatter but after about 30 seconds it purrs like a sewing machine.

Probably a silly queston, but is your oil fill cap tight?

dunno about the oil cap. I'll def. check. And no, I know the typical start-up noises (had an 08 WRX for 3 years) . . . this isn't it. Its like a repeated misfire in one of the cylinders.

Definitely taking it to the dealership this week. She's due for her first oil change anyway.

I have the same problem. It runs rough for the first 20 sec and eventually smooths out. Has about 1000 miles on. Please keep us posted.
