Is there something wrong with my clutch?

So lately ive notice something that has never happened to me before since ive owned the car. 2011 wrx with about 15k miles. When i downshift from lets say 5th to 3rd ( yes rev matching), i would feel my clutch virbrate, judder, shake.. ect. I only feel it when i press down on the clutch to engage into the gear, even so i would feel it vibrate as a release the clutch slowly. Has this happened to anyone before? It happened to me 4 times in the past 2 month. Should i be worried?

Is it fully warmed up when this is happening?

Take it in and have a tech drive with you. Warranty

yeah it happens when its fully warmed up. I took it in to the dealer and they said they cant do anything about it if they cant duplicate the problem. Although they said it might be a " hot" spot on the clutch. Ive read online on some forums that this has happen to other subaru owners. They said to launch the car riding out the clutch a few times and it'll get rid of it.

Heard of that as well. Use the word "launch" loosely. Do what they said and make sure it's documented on their end.
