I have ben experiencing a stiff clutch after a hour drive. I 'll be in 6th gear for about a hour on the Taconic heading back and fourth from my house to Manhattan everyday. Sometimes but not all the times the clutch feels like a stage 5 clutch from a Mustang. Its been doing this since new and im the only one that drives the car. Its about a year old 05 and I got around 27,000 miles on her. I use her alot as you can tell! I baby and take car of her real good. I ve told the dealership about it and those dorks tell me that they want to take it from me for a couple of days. You would think when you give them the symptoms you experience you would receive some type of feedback. Im a Freelance Audio Engineer, I just did a show for Mobb Deep a rap group. Could you imagine if you came to one of my shows and the sound was fudged up and I had no responce on what was wrong, Id be out of a job real fast!!!! Anyways let me know if you guys no anytihg about this I did some searching in the posts and found nada. Thanks for the help NIKO <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Clutch is hard after a hour ride??? Anyone have this problem (OOKLAA)

Ive gotten a little of that on my 2+ hr ride up to school. Let me preface this with the fact that I do love this car, however, when you drive the car hard for an extended period of time it becomes nothing short of worthless. The engine gets hot and loses power, the brakes are a joke when they heat up, the clutch feels like a one legged squat, and when you get out and look at your car, the rims are a mystic charcoal. Maybe im just venting here, so to conclude, yes the clutch does act up on long rides, or hard ones.

Other than the huge amount of bugs on the front of the car, it was fine. Brakes, acceleration, everything.<p>Oh, I have a GT so I have no info on the clutch.

They f**cked up Kurt's car so bad that it started a series of events that resulted in a blown (R) engine which was traced back to their(probable) initial faulty work
