Downshifting on 2011 Legacy (manual)
Every so often I get a faint smell like burning breakpads / clutch. I initially thought it was just the fact it was a 'new car' and some coatings on the underside were being 'burned in' but now I think it could be the clutch. Anyone aware of issues with the clutch on 2011 Legacy?
This is my first AWD so maybe I should not be downshifting on an AWD and just put the wear on the breakpads?
By the way in those 40+ years of driving I never once burned out a clutch even when towing (not towing anything yet on the 2011).
Maybe they arn't making clutches like the used too? Last car was a Mitsubishi 3000 GT manual, sold it at 120k with origional clutch in it.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
