Re: Clutch Replacement Time?
They've been saying to keep an eye on my clutch since I bought my CS (26K odo.) I've got 36K on it now, still feels the same to me. I don't track, but I'll occasionaly launch and drive a bit aggressively for fun on backroads. The clutch pedal doesn't really snap back, and it feels a little heavy on roll outs, but it doesn't overrev, or slip.
Clutches are hit or miss. A good driver can drive a car for it's entire life without needing to replace. I've taken 2 cars to 100K before replacement. I have an 06 Civic DD, and the clutch went at around 13K, HondaCare said I needed to learn stick. Put 80K on since, still feels like new. When it died on the civic, there were almost no warning signs, drove it 300 miles the day previous, and then with 10 miles was completely shot. Previous cars, I saw it coming months in advance.
Bottom line, if you need a new one, don't wait, and as long as the cost of parts and labor isn't obscene, just get it done. Sooner or later it won't go in gear and then you'll need to throw a tow on top the bill.
