So my clutch started shuttering for the first few stops in the morning after sitting overnight. Seems just as described in the sticky- My question is how common is this for the 2006?! It seemed to me that they would put the updated clutch in the 06 but if it has the same problems as the 05 did they switch!? What should I do?
Will I get charged at the dealer since Im passed the 12,000 mark?! This is why I got a new car in the first place! I didnt want the problems of the 150,000 clutch on my old honda!! But now im having problems with my mazda at 28,000! WTF?
your opinions are welcome just dont try to tell me that I "race" my car and that is the problem because I have never seen a track day in my life... thanks!

Man thats too bad! Did you take it to the dealership? I just don't want to be charged fort them to look at it because the problem is "out of warranty" even though I have never heard of a clutch going so soon any any other car...

my clutch exploded at 16k, and I have an '06. The mechanic was telling me it is basically the same clutch they used on the older 2.3 ltr(I think it was 2.3) 626's. I'm gonna guess that has a little something to do with it.

I am surprised that the newer ones still suffer from this. My Mazda replacement clutch has 20,000 miles on it now and it's still doing fine. While it is not the best one that I have ever driven, it is far superior to the original junk that it replaced. Oh, yeah...I had mine replaced at 45K miles under warranty! Search the drivetrain section for related threads.

Ron Tonkin is a sponsor here in the club so I hope they will treat me well. I will have to wait untill school is out for winter (if it will last that long!) Why would they use a clutch designed for a 2.3!? cheap asses! :slap:

What does this mean?[/b]
I had 26k on the odometer and i got mine covered and they even put in a lightweight flywheel for me.I had been complaining about the clutch since it had 5k for miles and it was no arguement with the TSB and my complaints.

A little bit of clutch chatter is not unusual for a cold soaked car. Like peteG said, as long as the chattering goes away after a few engagements, then it should be fine. If you drive properly, that clutch will last much longer. My stock clutch is at 81,000 miles and running. It's getting pretty weak, but it's still going. And it's part of the inferior '03-'04 clutch generation to boot.
