Re: Clutch life
I beg to differ. The 240k my Quantum Wagon has on it are very hard
miles. It's been through 3 (count 'em) TEENAGE drivers. My older
brother drove it for a year and a half in Atlanta and autocrossed it in
every event he could get to. I drove it for nearly three years - popping
the clutch at 3000 RPM to impress the guy next to me at the light (I
think I've grown up a little since then - but not much). You just have
to admit - VW/Audi uses a very stout clutch. And we all thank them.
