Tell me again what the 1000 mile BS thing is supposed to do?

so Tranmission specialist actually drove car yesterday [we are at 5500 miles in 11 months] and said this is not right ... and currently he is "researching" what to do. But is thinking that we probably are going to need a new clutch. I'm thinking that if that clutch change is like the new car ... I won't even have to think about the BS 1000 break in period again.

Maybe the BS 1000 mile break in period was just to see if the old clutch would make the grade ... sort of like a coin toss?
I'm getting a new clutch. I'll let you know how it is... Tomorrow is the 'latest' they say they'll have it.. I'm hoping for a call today.
