Just got full clutch assembly replaced under warranty at dealership and the clutch starts slipping.
Symptoms: When in 1st gear on a dead stop depressing the clutch pedal, pedal starts vibrating. Every gear after 2500 to 3000 rpm clutch starts slipping ( pushing gas pedal rpm spikes up and barely car accelerates). Downshifting to 2nd vibration in clutch pedal.
Called dealership and states that the clutch needs to be broken in, but slips drastically. When I bought the car brand new never had this problem so why they say clutch needs to be broken in.

So is this normal or should I take it back to the dealership?

Clutches need to be broken in. The clutch is included in your 1000 mile breakin. It's one of the reasons they tell you not to go full throttle.

If you already slipped it a lot, it could already be hot-spotted to the point where it's going to be useless and they're going to have to fix it again anyway.
