When i had my 2008, my clutch went out at 13,000 miles. I took it to the dealer, and they fixed it under warranty.

PM me your vin and i can check for TSB/FSA on your specific vehicle

i fixed mine Marie, i think the marcel in the clutch is bad or there was something not flat..i was driving about 45 MPH and pushed in the clutch until i was about 4500-5000 rpm and heled it there for about 1/4 mile and it has never done it since

if there wasnt a notice out on these clutches i doubt they would be replacing it, but it seems to be affecting many 08's regardless of tire size
