06 Clutch...Bad?

I experienced my first problem with my 06 yesterday.

I had just left the xgames and flipped a U-turn, and I smelled my clutch burning.
Stopped at the light with it in neutral. And when I was ready to go, I was locked out of all of my gears (1-5, and R).

I had thought my clutch was fried. It is my daily driver, I am not very hard on it. Right now only 12K miles.

Took to subaru,.... Monday they said everything was working properly and that there was no problems.

Now I have to drive it untill my clutch breaks again.

More then likely you did the same thing I did at the Drags this weekend.. If you managed to over heat the clutch disk it will cause the situation you are describing.. I grabbed 2nd gear and my clutch slipped through 2nd and then I had to wait for 30 minutes after wards before it cooled enough that I could get into reverse..

02 WRX.. "It's fun when it runs.. Problem is that it hardly ever does..."
