    I've had some cars with clutch chatter. Mostly banked engines will do this (V's in my experience)

    I owned a Beetle that didn't chatter at all, but this WRX gets clutch chatter like my 73 Formula. Something serious, or are other people getting it ?

    Inlines never get it.

    Damn. Sounds like you bought a winner. I bet mine's still worse though!

    It's just clutch chatter. My old Formula used to do that.

    the colt had clutch chatter around the time the clutch surface broke apart from the middle, at the rivets.

    Good luck getting warranty work on the tranny. SOA is currently authorizing very little warranty work on the glass-like WRX trannies. Chances are, your local dealer will reject the claim. If you want SOA to cover it, you're in for a fight.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. When does it happen? How often? Mine like to chatter when I'm going slightly uphill into my garage sometimes. I've never thought twice about it.
