Im new to this forum so hi everyone :)
Car details :
Vauxhall Astra 1.6 Petrol 2012
Miles on the clock 4945
Gearbox f40
My clutch its very stiff/Hard to Press its been only replaced in July, and since that i done only about 1800 of Miles, i had it checked twice with vauxhall and they Say there is nothing wrong with it, i went today to my local garage and mechanic said the clutch feels like its only got 30/40% of clutch life left? How can this be possible?
The Best thing is that the clutch start to become very heavy after 2 days of replacing So it was only light for 2 days.
Can anyone give me an idea what can i do with them? They keep ingoring me im thinking about making an complain as its cant be right that the clutch its fu*ked after 1800 of miles馃槧馃槧

It's probably best to put it all into writing to the service manager, explain what you've had done, reasons why you are not happy, that you expect a clutch to last at least a year within normal driving conditions, you took the repairs in good faith. Ask how he would be prepared to remedy the situation. As you've already tried the face to face approach. Then at least you have it all in writing if you decide to take it any further.
If you don't get anywhere with them, then try the Vauxhall customer services route.
The clutch should not be stiff with your car either.
