Within 3 months of the purchase date
the car developed a severe case of
clutch "chatter" in first gear. It was
like pulling teeth to get Subaru
America to authorize replacement of the
clutch and that only happened because
the dealer mechanic agreed that the
clutch was bad during a test drive!
Within 2 months, the new clutch started
to go bad. With this many reported
problems with the clutch you would
think Subaru America would issue a
recall. Wishful thinking on my part!
AWFUL clutch design, poor gas mileage,
underpowered, and a lot of wind noise.
