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:

I've only read of one clutch dying completely and that was on a speed. So don't know where you are seeing this at.

His comment was he was saving the clutch and documenting what he found because it was an obvious part failure and he expected a class action lawsuit against Mazda, it looked that bad.
Brilliant idea
Good to hear. Hopefully this one holds tough, if it doesn't then we may have other internal issues. One member here is on his third OEM clutch, which I would think is something defective inside causing poor alignment.

But keep us updated Ron
Or updates on how well the spec is working?
He "was" joking.
