08' Stock clutch issue

Hey guys, im in the process of buying an 08' wrx . After driving 09'-13' models ive come upon an 08' locally that was priced excellent. I test drove it tonight and the clutch felt very weird. Ive been driving standard transmissions for years and on many many different makes and models of vehicles. the first initial push on the clutch feels normal but as the clutch get's to the bottom of the throw toward the floor it becomes very very heavy and actually laboring to try and push. the car shifts fine and only has 39000 miles on it. Is this something that the 08's are known for and if it is would an adjustment fix this issue or should i tell the dealer to put a new clutch in? Thanks in advance

Re: 08' Stock clutch issue

good excuse to test drive a few more to see if the clutch feel is normal.
