If it's a high-mileage clutch, or driven hard, the pressure plate might be throwing in the towel. Be forewarned, they can make the car undriveable in a matter of about 4 or 5 miles!! That's what happened on my Legacy. Drove 5 miles to something, drove okay, drove 5 miles back, became almost impossible to drive on way home, couldn't shift, engagement point on the floor. Took it to mechanic the next day, 3 miles in 2nd all the way, pedal stayed on floor when I parked at the shop!

In the meantime, when was the last time you checked the gear oil level in the transaxle? Dipstick is underneath your spare tire, on the passenger side of the tranny. I'm running Mobil 1 synthetic gear oil in mine now, very smooth.
