Hi Matt, Many thanks for your reply.
I bought the car at 12 months old with 18,000 miles on the clock from a Jaguar dealership.
I have used the car to take my disabled wife out, mainly on holidays, and day trips with very few short journies. The short, start stop journies were undertaken in my Toyota Avensis which has 96,000 miles on the clock and no sign of clutch wear.
You say that engine misfire may have contributed to premature failure of the clutch. Will the garage who has the task of replacing the clutch be able to find out if this has been the cause? and is it likely to occur again?
I am unhappy with the fact that the car has failed at such a low mileage, and intend to let Jaguar know of my feelings. Thanks, Trevor
if you have a check engine light on then there may be a misfire code logged which woudl help pinpoint the fault
if there's no light then its likely to be OK
