    Re: Clutch life

    Clutches aren't that big of an expense with these cars and 60k to 80k miles for a 10-15 year old car is also not that many miles. That being said, the car will probably need more than just a clutch...

    MOST HUR is what you need. NAV-TV is the usual choice but costs around $500. AVIN is a Chinese copy for about $100. Most people don't have complaints about that one.
