okay so last night on my home from work my car just dies, engine is going but car aint going no where, got stuck on the side of the boonies on my way home, sucked 1hour an half in the middle of bumble f*CK, my car had 77858 miles on it, what is the life expectancy on a stock clutch 5years? 50 or 70k miles before its supposed to replaced....?

dropped the car off at the dealer they are charging me 876 plus tax for new clutch and labor, :dur:

i was told that since we have a hydralock clutch, it usually only last for 50k or 5 years, i guess if carefully taken care of im sure it could go more than 100k, i never really beat on my clutch, just mild driving i'd say for myself, but im kinda of glad it died on my way home from work at 12am instead of during rush hour in the morning, but that sounds pretty good that ur car has 30k still going strong, i wonder who in here has gone past 80k on stock clutch

It's weird how you say it "died"... A clutch usually would start slipping, etc. etc. before it totally becomes undrivable. I mean unless you were totally oblivious to the slippage, you should've caught this way before it died.

i already knew it was slipping, i'd rather drive the car to the point of if i have to break down im gonna have to, thank god for triple aaa, anyways car is getting fixed but read the title it says how many miles did you push on stock clutch before it died! i just wanna see how many other 3 owners have gone on there clutch before it was completely gone or had to be replaced because of slippage

i didnt have enough money for that :wtc:

i really wanted to get a mazdaspeed clutch but oh well, maybe later i'll get one but the price to change it was crazy 876 plust tax, its a big chunk of change. maybe this clutch i'll get more than 77k miles on it.

then again whats the purpose of modding my car if im thinking about getting an EVO in the next year or so
