I bought my 08 from a guy that got it CPO and had purchased the gold plus warranty from Subaru, when my clutch started to pop every time it was touched I took it in. They pulled the Cowl and said it was the firewall. 3 days later got a call saying SOA approved of the fix and all i had to pay was the $100 deductible. Haven't taken the car in for the fix yet due to it taking a month according to Subaru but I seem to have gotten away without a tiny bit of hassle besides back to stocking my exhaust and sway bars. I have no idea how its gone fairly well so far.
