i have that same problem due to misfiring of cylinders. They said my compression is screwed up so at idle i keep foot on brake and hit the gas just a bit so it doesnt die on me. I would suggest looking elsewhere for a car. Its a pain on freeways.

Don't buy it. The most common cause of a "skip" at idle is poor compression in one cylinder, a sign of engine problems down the road.
