    Exclamation Cruze Clutch problem

    I bought a Chevrolet Cruze 2.0 VCDi LT 4d (2010/59) in UK. I immediately noticed a burning smell in the clutch. Had it checked at the dealers but they said they could not find anything wrong. My clutch has now gone at 24000 miles and have been told I have to replace the fly wheel as well at a substantial cost. Has anyone else experienced similar problems?

    They should replace both under warranty.. I have the Eco mt so I expect I will be in need of a replacement sooner or later but there's no way I would pay
    For something under the powertrain warranty

    I can see covering a clutch at 2k miles, as that sometimes happens. The only part they do not cover though is the flywheel or clutch plate. The pressure plate should be covered, and if that was the problem, the rest of the clutch as well. At 24k miles though, I don't think you got much of any leg to stand on.

    How do you drive your car? How much do you feather your clutch? 24K isn't really early for a clutch to go out. The clutch and flywheel on my truck was still great at 130K, but changed the clutch anyway.

    That's even having hauled cars on a trailer and even cooked the clutch a time or two backing the trailer into the driveway, loaded.

    Most of my clutches lasted @ 80000 miles(2 Aleros and 1 Camaro). Yea I had an Alero 4 dr 5 speed. Talk about an odd car. I loved the 5 speed and wanted a 4 door. The camaro had 77000 when I bought it and had to replace shortly afterward. So 24000 on a clutch. I would be very upset!!.

    24,000 miles is obnoxiously early for a clutch replacement IMO. I bought my other car (a 1993 VW Corrado) used and have put 80,000 miles on the clutch. That's in addition to what the previous owner had on it before he sold it to me. From what I've seen as a Saturn and GM tech, 100k-150k miles per clutch disc is normal.
