2015 Manual Clutch Stays Engaged

Driving along, no pre-warning. Go to shift, let the clutch out and no go. It's like the clutch is still engaged. I can shift into all of the gears fine. I drive the car fairly conservatively. The clutch was not slipping beforehand. The car only has 37k miles. I did a search but didn't see anything related. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Just heard back from the dealer. The slave cylinder leaked. Less than 37k miles and 3.5 years old and Ford won't cover it under warranty. It's considered a wear item. I don't beat the crap out of the car and the clutch discs are still like new and I'm pissed it won't be covered. What a shame.

I call BS on the dealer/Ford. The clutch slave cylinder is a powertrain item - not a wear item (like brake shoes, etc - by that thinking the entire vehicle is a 'wear item'). Powertrain should be covered 5 years / 60K miles. Call Ford Customer relations. Or get it it fixed at a reputable independent shop, save your reciepts, etc, and then take the dealer to small claims court and get your money back. Im not a lawyer so get other opins.

Good luck
