If somebody's willing to put up with that kind of behaviour from a brand new car - fine for them - they are the exception I'm sure - the rest of us are entitled to resolution of a serious issue occurring to a large number of these vehicles under warranty.
Ok fair enough. I will enjoy my car that has a great tranny drives awesome but does the clutch noise once in a while after long drives while you search for your "resolution". Cheers :-)
