Default 2005 Prius Shutter and Stop/Idle

Hello,

Iím a new owner of a Ď05 Prius and Iíve noticed a slight shutter at a stop or sometimes in idle. Iím not familiar with these cars and Iím not sure if itís a rough idle or itís the gas motor and electric motor switching. Can anyone advise? I tried searching and nothing along the lines came up.

Thanks,

Ryan

These little 4 cylinder engines do shudder a bit when starting up and shutting down, some of the time.
Also a bit noisy when started cold sometimes.

Probably nothing to worry about but it IS a 12 year old car. It is bound to have some wear on "stuff".

How many miles ?
