I have the chance to buy a 90 legacy that has a "bad" clutch. The owner said he put a clutch in and drove it for three months and it went again. Is that possible? I don't have much experience with Legacys or clutches so any help would be great. 1990 Legacy awd 120,00 miles

How many miles did he put on this new clutch? I dont see how a person could wear a clutch out in 3 months unless he was doing alot of high rpm drops on that clutch.

I guy is older and said that he took it out in the woods a couple times and put about 10,000 in mostly highway miles before it messed up again. I looked under the car and he didn't drive it hard in the woods form what I can tell.

Yeah, when I took my dads 90 legacy awd 5spd off road, burnt clutch was pretty regular if you had to start of a hill or sand,but thats when the clutch already had 30,000 to 40,000 thousand miles on it. If you end up getting the car replace the clutch with a 91 or later clutch, subaru increased the size of the clutch 1/8 of a inch. We have the newer clutch in my dads car and it does feel better and does'ent burn nearly as easily.
