Mine is the same way. I have found that if I turn the car off, then restart once it is warmed up it will often idle down to 800, but not always. I have noticed that if you stop at a light and stay there for more than a few seconds it will idle down to 800 vs 1000 too. I'm guessing its part of the programming for the engine.
