The clutch is one of the components that is loaded extremely more than in conventional use. Every time the engine starts (avg. once a minute) the clutch shall speed up from 0 to 1200 rpm.
Now the clutch has to be replaced after nearly 125t miles.
The previous owner used the car for 105t miles, no idea about is driving style.
When I bought this car I felt that the clutch wasn't in a good condition but it still worked fine.
Today I can't go faster than 50 mph, but that's good for saving fuel
Anyhow it will be replaced within this month.
