I recently purchase a 2002 Subaru Forester on ebay. I am happy with the purchase overall but there are a couple of issues. The one i am concerned with is clutch jutter. I have 54,000 miles on the odometer. I called SOA and was told the only way they would cover it under warranty is if the flywheel was faulty. Have any of you had experience with this? I live in central Arkansas and there are only two dealers in the entire state.

There is a service bulletin on clutch judder. It's basically a replacement of the clutch and maybe new flywheel. Your warranty runs out at 60000 miles, so you don't have much time to get it covered under warranty. (That's if that forester has the original clutch and hasn't already been replaced under the same service bulletin.) Service bulletins are fixed for free if under warranty and someone complains of that problem stated in the bulletin.

Do a search here on "clutch judder" and see what you get.
