    Exclamation subaru making me pay.

    I drive a 2013 white wrx sedan and earlier this week my clutch complitly failed for the second time. the first time was fixed and paid for in full by subaru. a few months later the same thing happened but much worse my gears werent catching at all and my car was pouring out smoke. not only are they trying to make me pay in full but are claiming its from abusive driving which is not the case, im a conservative driver that doesnt drive long distances often.

    Any related problems that anyone has experienced would be greatly appreciated.

    Two clutches in one year? I'm sorry, but I'm inclined to side with Subaru on this, unless there's proof the second clutch was installed incorrectly. How long have you been driving stick?

    "A little while" is pretty vague..
    Is this the car you learned on? Where is your foot when you aren't clutching?

    While you were being confident, did you smell the clutch burning, grind any gears, slam the car into first at high rpms, downshift to brake, etc? Only time I ever destroyed a clutch, it took over a year and I was slamming it all. the. time.
    Not so much anymore.

    To answer a few questions my foot is to the left of the clutch when I'm not engaging I do not downshift to slowdown and I don't grind gears, also this isn't the car I learned on, I learned on a e46 m3 and a previously owned 08wrx which was traded in towards the current car.

    ok. So what was the actual failure point of the clutch, throw out bearing, pressure plate, clutch disc, etc ???? Did they say ??? Beyond that the fact that this is the second clutch on a 2013 vehicle...
