Kinda similar... I'm going to get a new clutch and put it in and see if it fixes the issue.

I bought the car with a new clutch in it 3 years ago, from the dealership. They showed me paperwork and all on the vehicle

I could tell if the clutch was the problem when I was twelve years old. That is not meant as an insult guys, only that it is very easy for someone trained to tell this problem. I'd certainly be having others look at it before sinking money and work into a clutch change, you could easily be describing many other things with that OP. A clutch slipping should easily show on a tach if you have one, the rpm will be increasing but speedo not. Rpm will also be too high for the speed you are at. Put your foot in it, it will get worse and rpm comes up even higher but car movement doesn't increase.
