Normally the car idles around 800. I've noticed though that sometimes with the AC on it will idle around 700. Furthermore, if the AC is on and you take your foot off the gas, the RPMs will occasionally dip down to about 400 before coming back up again.

A dealer tech had a scan tool in mine for another reason. We noticed the idle speed was about 785 when the car was standing still and around 885 with it rolling. Maybe that's why we're seeing different values.

Turning AC on/off had no impact on idle speed (at stand still).

The tech also told me that green engines might tend to sag down lower than expected but that goes away when you get one or two thousand miles on it (internal friction goes down).
