We had to suddenly replace my Forester's clutch and used a non-subaru clutch because we don't live near a Subaru dealer and needed to save money. Since it was installed, I look as if I have never driven a manual before. It jerks, sometimes I kill it; my husband refuses to drive it because of the less-than-smooth takeoff. Especially bad when stopped facing uphill. I wonder if it has anything to do with the anti-rollback feature. Any ideas?

new clutches are generaly more grabby than worn out ones, you were used to the worn out clutch now you have to basicly relearn with the new clutch, the new clutch will start to bite well before the worn out one you were driving on before, you have to relearn the friction point of the new clutch..
