    The word you're looking for is "void."

    You modified your car beyond stock power levels which resulted in damage to the drivetrain. Do you think it is honest/fair/reasonable to expect the dealership to honor your warranty when you have taken aggressive steps of your own to increase the wear and tear on the vehicle?

    If you think the dealership should be held responsible for fixing your car even though you modified it beyond the stock power levels, then yes, you should take it back to stock and have them do the warranty work.

    Do you think that you have reaped what you sowed and now you need to pay to play? Are you the kind of person who takes responsibility for his actions when they result in a negative outcome? If so, then you should just pay the money for a new clutch and store this in your collection of life lessons regarding car modification.

    Modding a car isn't free, and increasing the engine output above stock has repercussions on the whole vehicle. If you think the dealership should foot the bill because you went stage 2, I think you will find the majority of ClubWRX members disagreeing with you.

    why take it to the dealer to put a stock clutch on when your just going to break that as well. save yourself the time and trouble and just go buy an aftermarket stage 2 clutch

    ok i think i might rant a little but i wanna keep it on topic.

    First of all u own a WRX and u smoked the clutch nice one, two at the begining of this year i bought a 2002 WRX bc its my dream car but i bought it used and with no warranty i was like ok everything looked good so i didnt really worry to much but i had it for about a mounth and a half then on my way to work i just shut off. come to find out i was the main rod bearing had spun. list of broken **** (crank out of round, piston cracked and cylender wall scrached) anywho i had to end up and by a whole new motor for 2 grand ontop of my loan i took out for the car. Three i had a 97 chevy cavalier that i tunned up and i blew 4 trannys and 3 sets of axles and never once smoked a cluch so nice going.

    ohh by the way just replace the clutch urself its easy well at least for me and when u get the new clutch get ur flywheel turned down bc u probly heated that up too if u smoked the clutch.

    You're missing the main point here though Tim. Since it's the clutch, i.e. a wearable component, no warranty is going to cover it anyway!

    Eh...I've heard of clutches being replaced under warranty. My dad had one done on his Forester back in 2002. I know what you're saying, it's like warrantying the gasoline in the tank because "zomg it ran out!" but at the same time if a clutch dies well within the expected lifespan, it's no unheard of to have it replaced.
