Clutch Life


I appreciated your statement of the obvious in your recent posting - clutch
wear related to clutch use, not mileage.

None the less...

My experience with 2 daughters driving 2 different jettas - each lasted past
about 150k miles.

My 5000SQ with 110k still (dare I attract the attention of the "Audi Gods")
going on the original clutch.

In all 3 instances a mixed bag of free-way, and in-town driving.  Clutching
habits of course make a difference too - shudder to think about my teenagers'
clutching habits, but then, perhaps I'm mis-judging them.  They certainly did
better than I did in my first car - new '69 bug - about 65k (but then clutch
materials have come a long way since then).
