I'm looking forward to hearing what they say, but I bet the reply is the good 'ol "they all do that" or this is "considered normal". However, what is considered normal by Subaru isn't necessarily "right". I don't foresee Subaru engineering a solutoin to our problem. I've never had a car that just jabbed power on and off like this one. There seems to be no attempt by the car to feather in and out of the gas at all. My guess is that it also involves the new drive by wire throttle and they just didn't perfect it well enough. To me the drive by wire is a bit temperamental compaired to the older mechanical method. I also wonder if this also pertains to the harsh down shfts when using cruise control I have talked about in other threads?
