WHY HAS DUAL MASS FLYWHEEL BURNT

2009 Dodge Nitro • 28,000 miles

Hi, I have a dodge nitro 2.8 d bought in 2009 but I believe the car is 2007 model. Three weeks ago I was over taking a car in 3 rd gear manual transmission when I noticed the rev counter started to rise but the speed didn't took it to dealer who took it apart and said clutch was burnt out and dual mass flywheel needs replacing.I only noticed it 1 time and have been driving very cautiously till I could book it in. How come this could happen when I had hardly any notice and it's only done 28000 and is under 3 years old they won't fix it under warrenty

That is a driving habit issue. The dual mass is expensive but cannot take much abuse.

Suggest changing driving habits.
