I purchased a 2006 GT Spec.B with 25K miles, in 11/07 from a private party, and love it. It's got 35,500 now, warranty expiring at 36K.
My fiancee was stuck in stop and go traffic for about 45 minutes Sunday on a hot day, and smoke started coming out of the engine scoop.
Car was towed to dealer and they said the clutch overheated, and that there is nothing to be done. I'm a mechanical idiot, and wonder if anyone has suggestions. I notice the clutch is engaging higher up than before now, and there's a slight shudder - both only starting into 1st gear. I'm concerned there should be some sort of warranty coverage for this, but the dealer says they find nothing wrong. Thanks.
