I've got a 2011 WRX with 5500 miles on it. Traded in a 2009 and bought the 2011 finally feeling happy that Subaru "lightened" up the clutch tension and it felt softer but after 4000 miles and a cold winter (19-30 deg F) the clutch has started to feel as if it has stiffened up and the tension much stronger than before.
Went to a dealer and checked out a '11 STI and another '11 WRX and found the clutch was easier and smoother to push down! I could practially press down the clutch with a few fingers versus using my whole arm to crank down the pedal!
Anyone else notice their clutch pedal tension starting to stiffen harder than the first time rolling off the dealer lot (stiffening clutch pedal tension)?
Any suggestions on a fix?
Would bleeding the clutch fluid and toping off help?
(Has anyone heard Subaru come forward regarding issues with the clutch pedal, such that clicking that I've heard from other 2011 owners?)
