Worn Clutch in 2012 Kia Soul

I have a 2012 Kia Soul with 27,000 miles and the clutch needs replacing. I’ve driven standard transmission vehicles for 45 years (sad to say) and have never had a worn clutch. How can I tell if the original clutch truly is worn or is defective? This is rather critical-if its the former (i.e. worn), I’m out $1400.00; if its defective, the manufacturer pays.

thanks-yuz guyz are da best!!!

Find out if the clutch hydraulic system was operating properly.

You can drive a manual transmission vehicle all your life, but if the clutch hydraulic system fails the clutch can burn up in no time.
