Hello,

Just shy of 3000 miles on my Premium Ascent. I still really like this car, my favorite to date for sure. I'm new to CVTs ,and Subarus as well. When I first get the car started, it generally shoots up to around 2000rpm. I'd say it lasts for less than a minute each time. Is that normal? It happens on flat and less level surfaces, outside temperature has no effect. I can't find anything in the instruction manual about optimum rpm ratings.

Yeah, it's to get the coolant up to temp.

Another thing you may notice is that if you start the car up and start driving immediately, that rpms will be oddly high like 2000-3000 just going like 25mph.
