Acceleration problem..Please help!

Just bought an 06 wrx. When i floor it in 1st and 2nd gear and let off to shift it keeps revvin up by itself a couple grand its so annoying i cant shift right cause of it. Other than that it rides real smooth love drivin it I'm just hopin i can get this problem fixed before my warranty is up. If anyone has any ideas please let me know I'd appreciate it thanks.

Information? Is it an automatic or a manual? Stock or modified (and if so, how)?

Its a manual completely stock with only 50k on it, I got it from a used dealer lot they told me they put a new clutch in it so im thinkin whoever had it before me probably beat on it, I had to give it back to them already once cause the cel came on, two of the cylinders were misfireing so they replaced the coils and plugs.

So if the warranty is still on it, take it in. It's not your problem.

Almost sounds like it has flat foot shifting on it.

It also sounds like what the newer WRX's do at low speed, try to rev match to aid in low speed driving.

Either way, I doubt it's either.

When they find out, let us know. Sounds weird...

I wonder if they even flashed it back to stock before they sold it.... That or it's not 100% stockish
