how many miles? sonds like its time for a new clutch. i have already went through two clutches on my mine since feb of 08, lucky the first one was covered under warranty. it sucks but its pretty common on 08's for it to go out around 20-30 thousand miles.

I don't have to be mad to punch someone in the face!

Burnt clutch...Time to replace it and make sure you get your flywheel resurfaced or just buy a new one. No you wouldn't have problems getting it into gear, the clutch only acts as a clamping device.

such a relief but still sucks.. I got the extended 3 year/30,000 mile warantee with the car so hope mine hasnt been replaced once already or does that not mater because its under "my" warantee?
