Last week I started getting some shuddering during acceleration so I decided to take it in. I got the call this afternoon that they are replacing both of my clutches and I will be without my car for the week.

Luckily they are fixing the problem, I was worried I might get the "that's how it's supposed to work" speech.

I have never abused the car, mostly highway miles and I am only sitting at 22,000 miles.

I feel like I am in a support group.
Hi Gonzachus,

I'm glad to hear that your dealership is working hard to repair your vehicle. Let us know how the repair goes; if you need my assistance, I'm just a PM away.

Hi jwild1996,

I'm happy to get your case escalated to your region's customer service manager. Send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name; I'll make sure your CSM contacts you soon.
