Struggling RPM

Hi,

bit of a newbie to subarus, but my 2000 impreza is struggling especially when cold but then continues to do so when warm at around 2000RPM then all of a sudden gets grunt and off she goes.

Ive taken it back to the car yard i bought it from and they said they plugged it in to the computer and it said everything was fine and that Subarus just run like that...is this true or should i be taking it back?

Confused
