You once posted:
'm a bit surprised they told you this. There is a fix. It involves a clutch with lighter springs so it doesn't grab quite as
hard. Isn't grabby when cold, but ultimately won't hold as much power and might not last as long.
Or you can just fix it yourself by slipping it a bit more when its cold. The non-fixed clutch is better 'cause it's stronger.
It's just so grippy that it has a tendancy to grab when cold. It doesn't do it when new because the clutch hasn't been
bedded in yet, so it slips easier.
I'm always amazed by people's reactions to these kinds of things. It embarasses be when I have trouble driving a car
correctly - letting the clutch grab, stalling, grinding gears, etc. Its almost always a technique thing, so I adjust my
technique to do it right instead of running for a lawyer. Heck, I'd be mortified to stand up in court and say "I want money
'cause I can't get the clutch to engage smoothly and won't make the effort to try to do so".
What do you say now that Subaru has issues a TSB for the problem? Perhaps they did so because so many of us chose to sue for our rights as consumers.
