Clutch Issue?

I'm kind of starting to get worried...I love my Mazda 3s, but I've been reading on a lot of car complaints websites that more and more people are having their clutches "disintegrate" or just go out on them with low miles. Has anyone else had these problems?? Er, how many people have had this issue?? When they describe it, most of them drive all highway miles(like me) and their clutch goes out between like 13k-25k and I'm like right there...Has anyone else noticed that these complaints are starting to mount up???:001_unsure:

Why didnt u put as an option yes i have clutch issues but still going! Anyway i work at Rosenthal Mazda in tysons and just luke mmlehcim said its mostly those models that come in with that complaint but working here trust me if ur clutch goes theres no warrenty the dealer will just blame you. I have a 10 mz3 made but in end of 09 and i have few problems but just look into buying a upgraded clutch and look at the thread ob the clutch situation and some have ideas that help get rid of the problem
At 59k and clutch is great still starts grinding ever 26k it seems but I just do a flush to the system and put Penzoil 80w-90 GL-5 and the problem is solved and gone!
The clutch blew apart, went through the housing into the fuel lines, fuel hit the hot exhaust and caused a fire...car is gone.

ok i have no clue
Holy shit toyo say it isn't so!
Lol I know
