Mitsubishi Triton 2011: Clutch wear

Asked by Adam Smith

I have a warranty dispute with a Mitsubishi dealer over a 2011 Triton I bought just before Christmas. It developed a major clutch fault that made it undrivable and it needed towing. The assessment from my local mechanic shows it requires a full new clutch kit and machining of the flywheel. Mitsubishi says this is not covered under the three-month warranty as it is a "wear and tear item". I feel that this should be covered — I think that a vehicle costing nearly $20,000 that develops a major fault within a month and can't be driven is not quite right. What are your thoughts and do I have a case?

Sorry. Clutches, like brakes and tyres, are always regarded as wear-and-tear items. It's the same for new cars. Without doubting your driving, many people are very hard on their cars.
