    Thumbs up new clutch on warranty

    just took my car to dealer for clutch fault and vibration when starting. the clutch was giving me a slight judder when pulling off. only had it a month so back i went to be told might not be on warranty after heated words in service reception they told me the foreman would look at it as his time is not accountable for got phone call later to be told needs new clutch and dualmass flywheel all covered by warranty so good result really but they couldnt fault vibration so are keeping it for 2 days next week to do it all apparently there is a known fault with clutches just thought i would share this info with everyone
