Hey, so I have had my Subaru for about 2 weeks.

First, it has the clutch that holds while pressed in on hills.
- I can't stand this...is this an option that can be removed when my clutch needs to be replaced? did it take you (if you have this) long to get used to it..im having a hard time finding the "sweet spot" on it.

Today it did something strange - i drove it for 50 miles - it sat for 7 hours. When i drove it again, it felt like i was a noob at driving clutch, it had that not enough power in between shifts from first and second..don't know another way to explain it.

Then i drove 10 miles, turned it off for 30 minutes and turned it back and run weird for about 20 seconds..had low rpm for a second or two then jumped up close to 2k for a few more..something i never noticed before.

Thanks
Brad-

Bleed your clutch (assuming the '03 is hydraulic ... I think it is.) Better yet, change the fluid - you may have some water in it, that 'boiled' during your extended drive. If you do the fluid change, it will be bled as part of that process.
