Most of the time you Should feel this when your A/C is on. Thats because the a/c compressor is kicking in and causing the engine to rev slightly to compensate for the load or loss of power. This goes for just about ANY vehicle. Either; turn off your a/c periodically, shift to Park/Neutral when stopped, or Add More pressure to your brake pedal!
