Just because it was a woman, doesn't eliminate the possibility of improper driving technique. Some people slip the clutch excessively, which will wear it out quicker.
I've put a clutch in an X5 that only had a few thousand miles on it....driven by an innocent woman, who couldn't possibly be at fault with a brand new car. used
BMW will cover the first toast job under the new car warranty, but after that, your on your own...FYI
It does sound like a clutch slipping to me.
|Whatg do you mean "some people will slip the clutch excessively"? I thought a slipping clutch was when its starting to wear down, like mine is. Is there another meaning to "slip the clutch" that I dont know about? What exactly is "improper driving technique"?|

So thats basically describing how I drive in traffic. I dont let the clutch out all the way cause theres no room to go anywhere, so I rev a little and let clutch out halfway or quarter. So driving like that is bad for my clutch? How is somebody supposed to drive in traffic situations? Cant let the clutch out totally cause I woudlnt be going fast enough or giving enough gas and it would stall.
Thats basically how I learned to drive a stick, I guess my dad was wrong! n
