drifter2000 I'm at the point that I'd like to have options looked into. Although the option that I want will get Ford to take back this car, so I can go to a different dealer and get a car that doesn't have this shitty transmission in it.

Sounds like he has been to the dealer a few times and they aren't fixing it permanently. Is there a permanent fix out there for this yet?

Thanks for your input.

I've had my clutch replaced at 20k and 60k miles, and now at 85, am seeing the issues pop up again. If the trend continues, this is realistically my last clutch replacement that will be covered under the extended 100k mile warranty. Can I have any sort of confidence that they'll get it right this time?

That is the only saving grace as before, accelerating from zero was different each time....like a roulette wheel. A few days ago he was in my car and complimented how much more smooth mine was. I got my new clothes and seals in March 2015, his in May. Same dealership. The only difference is he drives like a grandma and I'm not afraid to floor it while at highway speeds. Perhaps that's what keeps things wearing a bit better for me???
How much highway/city do you drive? How much highway/city does he drive?

more power to you, i'm giving them 1 chance to replace the clutch (if it comes to that, just got re-flashed) and then I will be finding my way out of this car. Which really sucks because I love it to death

Mazda3 Owners Clutch Problems, Replacement and Premature Failure Are Not Your Fault

Mazda3 Owners ? Clutch Problems, Replacement and Premature Failure Are Not Your Fault - Consumer Class Lawyers Blog

"The 2011 and 2012 Mazda3 also suffer from early or premature clutch failure. Yet after four years of complaints from owners, Mazda continues to charge its customers thousands of dollars to replace a defective part that Mazda knows will fail well before it should."
