Thanks for the quick reply.
Idling RPM is about 750. If starting engine cold and in park, idling RPM is about 1000.
I am not under warranty. I have followed the maintenance schedule religiously. So I'm a little angry.
Is there any particular reason you suspect engine mounts?
My limited knowledge of engine mounts is that they don't break, they just wear out, so I guess there's no way I can inspect them visually to determine if there's anything wrong with them?
The mechanic at the dealership said he had trouble diagnosing the problem, so he called Subaru technical help, and they told him to rotate the torque converter 180 degrees, and apparently since the vibration was worse then, that meant the torque converter was bad.
