Is it normal for the engine to rev a little when braking? The rpm needle jumps up a little. Mine seem to do this (28 and 46 seconds in the video)

Also my rpm needle tends to drop really fast when I release the gas pedal. Most noticeable when doing city driving. Just trying to get some ideas what the problem can be or I'm going to have to bring it in to dealer as I don't think this is normal.

Normal. I don't know if I can explain it properly but mine does it too. It's when the transmission is downshifting when the RPMs drop too low. Also, for the city driving it's because when you let go of the gas pedal there is no more load on the engine and the transmission goes into either the next gear or a neutral state. If someone can maybe explain it a little better that'd be good but I'm 100% sure it's normal.

I was thinking the same thing. It's probably just downshifting.
