Even though the clutch is a wearable item it isn't covered under warranty I believe after 6 months or 6,000 miles or 12 months or 12,000 miles whichever comes first(keep in mind I am not sure which one is correct so posted both).So yes I would suggest having the dealership look at it being that you only have 2700 miles on it.Keep us posted on what they decide to do.

Well if you already have a clutch going out that means you 1.) were pushing it, 2.) it was a shoddy clutch. If you do push it, like hitting the rev-limiter, than they will check that and if they see that it happened a few times theyll probably say no about warranty work. So if thats the case then unplug your battery for about 5 mins, then go around driving and every so often shut it off, do that five times and then bring it in.

Thats not what I meant. What I did mean is that when they put your car on the scanner, they can see if you have hit the rev-limiter, and if you have then they think that you are really hard on your car, and probably drop the clutch and abuse it, therefore no warranty work on clutch.
I think you need to read my post one more time.

Just tell them that the reason the rev limiter was hit so many times is that the damn clutch was slipping...there is a story for everything

i never go over 5000 rpm's i dont drive the car hard, i baby it. the clutch shouldn't wear at 2700 miles, u would have to kill it everytime you drive it. plus a clutch should start to slip in higher gears rather then 1st gear, this is new car, and this crap is going on, i am starting to have bad feelings.
