I have 2013 Honda Accord 6 sp manual with 25k miles on, its clutch was completed gone last week, got new replacement, local Honda customer rep. told me I should watch my driving pattern, should using more break, instead transmission slow down, particular from high speed/high gears. I told them, we have 2008 Civic 5 speed Manual, I taught my two daughters how to drive it, and the car is still running without any problem… And, this is manual transmission car, tell a driver can not using/changing gears slowing down car is a joke… but maybe I am wrong… I am looking for advice:
- Is there a possibility Accord has design problem with inferior clutch materials used on their new 6 speeds manual Accord?
- Since car has new clutch, should I keep it for a while? Or, sale it immediately? I just can’t not see I am going to come up another $2,000 for 3rd replacement on clutch before the car get into 60K miles.
