Flat fours are not nearly as smooth as a lot of other car engines. Try another dealer as some are not very good but call ahead and run it past the service manager.

When the CVT is engaged (drive or reverse) the idle drops as the engine is bogged by its frictional losses. So it'll feel rougher than in neutral or park. But if you can't maintain 600rpm min in gear I'd get Subie involved to check the idle control valve.
