    Vibrating Clutch on Brand New 2016 WRX

    I've had my 2016 wrx for the past two days and noticed my clutch started vibrating after I drove it to work. It vibrates subtlely when pushing it in/out, enough to the point that my foot was buzzing for a few minutes after driving. Is this normal in the break in period? I have not driven the car hard at all (never past 4rpm) and have not noticed anything else wrong with it. I never felt this before on my previous MT Impreza.

    You are the second person today to state that their clutch is vibrating on a new 16. Though it is hard for us to determine if it is "normal" without actually experiencing it, I would say no. You seem comfortable with a manual, and if it seems odd to you, I would take it in.
    Drive like hell, you will get there faster!

    Ah that might have been me in the chat earlier. I had to close the window so hopefully I'm just the only one experiencing this. I'll take it in this weekend anyways just to be safe.

    Mine stuttered or was pulsating when I let the clutch out from a stop light this morning I have a 2016 wrx with 668 miles on it. Also I have only driven a manual transmission for the last 25+ years and I drive a semi for a living so I know how to drive a stick. I decided to come home and search for the issue in last years model and came across this thread right away. It's only done it once so far but it was bad.

    Warranty issue. I would take it to the dealership and have them check it out.
    Clutch must not vibrate at all.

    If mine does it again it will be going in, I just wanted to see if anyone was saying it has to deal with the hill assist that people have complained about of not.
