Ok - Here goes my problem / Question...
I have a 2006 Hyundai Accent. About 3 months old, less than 4000 miles
This week, I pulled up to a stop sign, and when I went to go again, the
clutch didn't engage - i.e. when I lifted it up, absolutely NOTHING
happened other than the pedal lifting up - no indication that it did a
Fast forward through towing etc... Now, the dealer says that the
clutch was burned out completely "to the metal" - i.e. worn out like it
had been ridden from here to heck and back again. Problem is, I've
never had this problem before (I've had three manual transmisisons
before, last clutch lasted 185k miles before replacement in my old car
if that says anything) so I think I know how to drive a stick shift.
Dealer is confident that there was not a defect in the clutch etc...
(Granted, I'm not the only driver - but my same folks drove the old car
too so same applies there)
Anyone have any ideas here? What could possibly cause this? I did NOT
notice any slipping prior to the total failure of the clutch - which in
itself seems really odd as I really would have thought that it would be
hard to have missed and for it to go so completely gone as it did so
Please - if anyone has had a similar experience or has any suggestions
on where to go with this I'd appreciate some feedback here.
