Hmmmm, now what does one think when a car with 4k and a blown clutch comes in, duh he beat the ***^ out of it, and the guy who owned it had the nerve to come B**** at our service writers saying this cars a piece of ***^ blah blah blah, so you never know what can happen.
You could beat on a Caddy CTS-V just as hard as a Cobalt, and the Cobalt would shows signs of abuse first I'm sure. It'* definitely possible that the owner beat on it, but you don't know. Considering it'* probably a young guy, and the car is SC, he has probably driven it hard though.
But I know some other cars that just have bad clutches. My cousin had an 03ish Tiburon and the clutch went at 5K. A good friend of mine also has an 03 Tiburon and knows that the clutches aren't that great. He'* been lucky so far.
