I have a 5 speed sport with 38000 miles on it. Lately the clutch has been slipping, especially when the transmission is hot. So I take it to the dealership and they tell me that I need a new clutch and that the old one is totally worn out. (I didnt think I drove it that hard...) The guy says that it will cost upwards of $1500 for the clutch kit and various other parts that the dealer needs to replace (I think it was the pressure plate or something), because its DC policy to replace them every time they replace a clutch. On top of that he says its going to take a week to get the parts. So I call around to two other places and they quote me similar rates, 1200 and 1400, so I called the dealer and told him to do it since he already had it taken apart and I figure they know what they are doing. So anyway its been a week and a half and when i call to get a status he tells me that the parts from DC did not include two bolts for the flywheel and its going to take 5 days to order them from Milwaukee. And apparently he can't reuse the old ones because it might throw off the balance of the flywheel. Long rant I know, but I am pissed that its taking so long! The only real question I have for everyone is are these manual transmissions that rare that it is this hard to find parts for them? I am mad and I want to yell at them, but I have been giving them the benefit of the doubt (5 Star Dealership and all.....). Anyway I just needed to vent. Thanks.
