This has been discussed many many times before. I myself have the same issue (though the flicker on the rpm needle isn't nearly as violent as yours). Some people blame various components, others never find a fix, and others say it's normal. I don't know what it is, but I don't give a crap anymore. Let it warm up for a minute and it'll be fine.

And i thought mine was bad. Add a little gas then slowly let off and watch how low the rpms drop before shooting up again. If it's below 650 rpm the dealer could raise the idle and it might fix it.

The crazy thing is that you only have 3k miles. What's up with that? Occasional drive to the dealer for maintenance and that's it?

Just see how low the needle drops when cold and warmed up. If it's too low the engine is almost stalling so the ecu compensates.
