Well, mechanically I believe the 99's and 00's are the same. They're both hydraulic. The 98's should be the same too. Perhaps the hydraulic system on your clutch wasn't bled properly, leaving some air in the system. This is just a guess....

syms: do u drop clutch all the time? that might cause air in the system...u will need to bleed or the best way is drain and refill w/ some better DOT4 or DOT5 brake fluid...(does Impreza use that? anyone knows?)

If you drop the clutch or slip it exessivly it wil boil the brake fluid in your clutch hydraulic system casuing little air pocket to be formed giving you a soft of spoungy clutch pedal.. When you blead it you get someone to pump and hold down the clutch pedal while another person crack open the bleader on the slave cylinder then close it before the person releases the clutch and repeat until there is no air or when the clutch pedal feels better.. Better yet.. get into other 2000 and 1999 vehicles and feel their clutch..
