The clutch & throwout bearing will last many many miles / years if you learn to keep your left foot on the floor except while changing gears. This includes sitting at stop lights.

i got one that has lasted about 165 thousand miles ,it all depends on how they are treated and how well you keep them adjusted ,the average is about 125 thousand on a good clutch,some times less,depends on who,s driving it,and how hard they treat it,good luck.,its pretty fair car,but not hardly worth the asking price,try to get it lower if possible,good luck .

It completely depends on your driving habits and skill.

These are Nice little cars that hold up well and 100,000 mile out of a clutch is not uncommon. But this Car should be checked over By Your Mechanic....... Because Lowered Springs and Larger Lower Profile tires tells me someone Built them Selves a Street Racer And it may Have Been Beaten..... And it will ride Considerably Harder Also you should make Sure you get any Paper work on Replaced Parts for there Warranty. As Far as is it Worth it you should Look around at some Local Dealerships and see what there getting for similar Car with similar Mileage.

I have never changed one unless it wasn't working properly. Start and stop (city driving) wears a clutch faster than highway driving. Heavy loads and abuse also shorten service life. A properly installed clutch,pressure plate,release bearing,and pilot bearing might last the life of this car IF it is not abused. Price seems a little steep for a car of this make and year. I usually get an estimate from "Blue Book" on the value of a car in the area it is located.

Clutch life largely depends on how the vehicle is driven, and where it is driven. a clutch can fail in a few thousand miles by Miss treatment. I have known clutches to last for many hundreds of thousands of miles when operated properly. If I were to place an average life span on a clutch I would say between 100 and 200 thousand miles. The car you are looking at has 140,000 miles on it and already had a new clutch installed. The price is in line with the type and model year, but I would be extremely wary because of the modifications that have been done on it. My opinion is that I would not buy it. Good luck!!

The Cluch changing is depending on the condition of traffic and bumps you ride/driveSo If you are a regular player of clutching than it will take 5000 to 7000 miles But if you are a wrong player of clutching than you ought to change after 2000 to 4000 miles

Default Re: how many mile do you need to change your clutch?

My 93 Mazda MX6 LS still has a great clutch at 214,000 miles, and an auto shop tried to scam me for clutch work saying it needed changing. Just change the clutch when the engine RPMs increase while speed doesn't increase / you can feel it slipping. And don't coast with the clutch pedal down, it's bad for the bearing.
