How many miles on your 5spd?
 
I'm at 105K+ now, and wondering how much life the clutch has left. How many miles on your 5spd, and have you had to replace your clutch?

Mine just sits unless itís a quick trip by myself mine has 49k (rounded up)

Mine has 115K on presumably the original clutch. I've only had it for a few weeks. I think the wear depends a lot on your driving style. I've had clutches last over 200K miles on other vehicles and wouldn't replace it just as a preventative measure.

96K on my original clutch.

Feels just like it did when it had 4 miles on it.

I don't expect to ever replace it. Although, at 250k when my kids start driving it I may make them replace it if they burn it up ... life lessons

I had two Focus with the MTX-75 before my current 2016, a 2000 and 2008, and both had the original clutch on them when I sold them. My 2000 had 198k miles, and the 2008 had 193k. Both were 50/50 mix of highway and city mileage.

Just under 100k on mine, and I don't think the previous owner replaced the clutch. Keep going until you start to have an issue with it (like constant slippage).

My 2006 is still being driven by my daughter at 160k, and she learned on that clutch at 80k. If you don’t abuse them, or ride the clutch, they should last 200k easy.

118k on my 2010 Focus so far

180k on my 01 Zetec, new clutch, engine and tranny have always been good. But everyFthing else has failed. Ive replaced a lot, these days its door handles/locks.

I just went over 45,000 on mine today but I am a little more demanding on my clutch and do drive a bit spirited more than most so I'd be happy with 75k but anything near 100k miles would be great.
