This isn't on my car. It's on a cruzetalk's member's 2011 Cruze Eco. The guy's screenname on there is TravsCruze, and he gave me permission to re-post these photos. The clutch was gone after 5500 miles. That did include 14 drag launches around 3000 RPM. Here's the link to the thread: Cruze Clutch Photos Now, photos re-posted with permission: This is worrying me for longevity. A few other clutches have gone out around 8-10k miles, with normal driving reported. Nobody has enough miles on their car to know if the OEM clutch will make it to 100k miles yet. So far, the evidence is that the Cruze's clutch has a short lifespan. I've already started pricing out aftermarket replacements. It's irritating to me that the clutch on my car might need replacing around the time it needs its first set of tires. I can do it myself, but it's still irritating and an expense that should not be needed at 20-25k miles. Fortunately the clutch in my Cruze Eco hasn't shown signs of weakness yet at 6k miles. Time will tell.
