There have been reports of "clutch chatter," particularly when driving the vehicle from a cold start. If the issue was reported by the owner while the vehicle was still under warranty, the dealer may replace the clutch with improved parts.

2002 Subaru Impreza WRX Reviews
We bought this used in 2004 with 24K miles. Now at 220,000 miles and still going strong. It is a joy to drive.
Only had this car 7 months and is my daily driver. Perfect blend of performance and practicality with good safety ratings too.
Only thing that I feel cheated on are the brakes. I mean everyone else has nice big 4 pot, 2 pot brakes, and we are the ones who have to upgrade and spend that much more on brake set ups and the money on them. :( kinda sad , but I have 2 Bug-eyes and love them both!
purchased second hand in 2006. Still going strong in 2010. Basically only regular maintenance needed. Very reliable.
A delight for 7 years and 100K mi.
