Blown clutch at 44,000 miles?

Noticed slippage and dealer checked it and gave me the bad news. But, I've never blown a clutch before and find it hard to take the clutch going before the brakes or tires.

Anyone else heard of this happening?

There was someone who had two clutches go out within the first like 31K miles or something like that. I don't remember the exact number, but, it was under 40k. Some cruzes had a faulty pressure plate that caused the clutch to die in the first 15k, but, the dealer covered that. The pressure plate wasn't completely flat.

It can happen. Take a close look at the friction plate. You're looking for even/uneven wear. Uneven wear may be is a sign of a mechanical issue that prevented the friction pad and plate from making a good solid connection.
