Being horizontally opposed it causes the engine to gently shake right and left. Not a big deal. Could also be caused by bad gas. Have you filled up at a cheap place? Or has the car sat for a very long time? Remember, a redline a day keeps the carbon away. Seriously. Floor it once in awhile. Happy motoring.
I've noticed something similar while idling at times. It feels like "jostling," and sounds some what like you described as shaking the car right and left. I haven't been driving my 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid long enough to be certain of a pattern, but it seems to happen earlier on in the driving day, perhaps after being driven a short distance, sitting for awhile, then being restarted.
So that would be normal? Because at other times it's nice and still while idling.
Also, why is "flooring it" helpful?
