So I just picked up my 3rd Subaru, it's a 13 DGM Hatch, I absolutely love it. After spending some time with the car I've realized that the clutch is engaging really high, similarly to how a vehicle with a shot clutch would feel, the clutch grips hard etc. I took it to the dealership and naturally they said nothing is wrong, upon review of the manual i noticed that it states there should be some free play, i had none whatsoever. so I took it upon myself to get under the dash and attempt to adjust it myself.
I removed the accelerator pedal, disconnected the pedal linkage and turned the rod clockwise 360 degrees and adjusted the switch appropriately, feels much much better now, i can feel the free play as well.just thought I would share my experience, if anyone feels that what I did can cause harm please let me know!
