    clutch Chatters @ 30k miles

    My wrx has 30,000 miles and the clutch is chattering badly. It only happens during the first 10 minutes I drive the car each day. It's VERY noticable during a first to second shift and still is noticable during second to third. What do you think is happening? Is this covered under factory warranty?

    Haha yeah right. It's not that easy. I've got the worst clutch "judder" ever, and I've taken my car to the dealer, TSB in hand, four times to get it fixed. The last time they removed the clutch for inspection, and still didn't replace it. Not only does my clutch "judder", but the engagement point is inconsistent, and lately I've had almost no pedal resistance until I've driven for 15 minutes. Yea!!!

    Wow, they replaced mine like they owed it to me. Some dealers suck bigtime.

    I doubt that it would still be valid if your powertrain warranty is over. After all, the TSB is simply a suggestion for the dealer.
