Disclaimer: I tried NASIOC and Reddit's search function... can't find exactly what I'm experiencing. I wanted to try reaching out here before calling SOA / the dealership. Unfortunately my service center techs don't treat me like I know ANY thing. Unsure if because girl, salty, or garbage techs.
The Car: 2018 STI Limited, bought with 4.0 miles. 5010 on the odo. No mods aside from dealer installed short throw and performance exhaust. NEVER been launched, actually made fun of for only reaching 17.3 peak PSI.
The Me: I've owned (all FWD) both hydraulic and cable clutches - from OEM up to Stage 4. This doesn't mean I know how to drive, but it isn't my first manual / I'm aware of the feel(s).
The Issue: Left this AM, nothing unusual. When taking off from a dead stop, clutch pedal seemed very easy to push in compared to before. I wouldn't say "spongy", but much less resistance. (I'm 5'2" so I have to extend pretty far)
No grinds, slipping, smells or noises - but it just does not feel the same. Even the 1st -> 2nd occasional rev / odd engagement doesn't occur.
Am I an idiot and my car suddenly feels "broken in" within minutes, or could this be an indicator a bigger issue is ahead? Has anyone else experienced the same?
With the rise of discord, I figured it was time to make a server for us too. I've talked to the mods and they have given me the okay to make this, so I present to you: the official r/subaru discord server! Link trying to grow the server into something where we can all communicate, troubleshoot, and to be even closer to the Subaru community we know and love! Discord is the perfect tool for growing and making a community like ours, and I wanted to share my part in it. With any great community, there needs to be a great way to talk to others and feel apart of that community, and while Reddit is great for sharing experiences with others, discord is great at talking and having a good time. Let me know what you guys think!
You literally saved my life tonight. I felt like ending it all because of some relationship problems, depression, and overall bad mojo recently. But when I saw that beautiful hatchback and we went back and forth, it felt nice and it gave me some happiness in my time of need. I dont know if you'll see this but thank you. Subies saves lives.
Beautiful exhaust btw, my sti is all stock :(
