Most of the other suspension videos I've seen/ heard didn't even sound like there was something obviously wrong, but then again it could be that based on my old car I may have classified something as normal when it may not be on the new one.
Go test drive a new '13. Probably the easiest way to figure out just how normal your car's suspension is behaving.
