Default I think my clutch is dead how many miles should I expect left.

so I just let a potential buyer test drive my sti he had cash with him, so I trusted him.
after the test drive I smell burnt clutch, and the when I shift feels really soft. Like its not grabbing as well as it did a few hours ago. I never beat the car or launched nor raced it.
I have a 05 sti at 80k stock clutch., so any advice let it cool down or is it shot? The buyer just dipped and said nah feels too slow.





i just went for a drive I have to rev very high to shift into normal gears., and when on the highway cant really hit 65+ in 6th have to shift to 5th than 6th again.
I am so pissed right now

Hey I got a 05 sti just ran into the same problem but little bit different situation. My clutch got really soft and then stiff then softer until the pedal finally stuck and I lost my clutch. I smelled a heavy dosage of burnt clutch and I check the master cylinder and there was no fluids left. My master cylinder gave out and had to replace that. Just an idea to help you out man hope its not too serious of a problem!

The dealer will be replacing the clutch. I am guessing with a stock one?

Yeah $1800 is way too much to pay(links for price examples), what is the price break down they are giving you?
