Is it normal for a 2011 wrx to have shifter wobble ?

Asked by Sep 24, 2015 at 08:03 PM about the 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Im about to purchase a wrx and when I tried it I noticed when flooring it and
shifting into second there is a wobble happening in the shifter once I let the
clutch go. I was told it is normal because its a high torque engine and also
because its a 4 wheel drive but im still uncertain.
