Clutch failed at 20k miles

2010 Volkswagen Jetta Limited Edition 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)

Review

At 20k miles, the clutch completely burned up. Smoke, burning smell, the whole deal. VW says the clutch is a "wear and tear" item, like tires or brakes, and thus it is not covered under my 3 yr/36k "worry free" new car warranty. The repair cost quoted by the dealer is $2400. I am an experienced manual driver and have never burned out a clutch before. My previous Jetta (1998) went over 160k on the original clutch before I traded it in. But, VW insists this is caused by the driver and not the part. I actually really loved this car until the clutch failed. But after having that happen, I'm not sure I could buy another one.

Suggested Improvements

A quality clutch. Stand behind your product when it fails rather than blaming the driver.
