2006 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 30000 miles
My son may have damaged the clutch on his accord. In his attempt to drive in poor weather conditions, he rode the clutch and when he arrived home the car smelled like burnt clutch. He complained that the next day he was having trouble putting the car into first. When I test drove it I had no trouble getting into first gear. I checked with the dealer anyway to find out what they would charge to replace the clutch and was surprised to learn that they insist on replacing the flywheel at the same time at a total cost of $1,650. Is this necessary when the clutch has been damaged? What is the likelyhood that he didn't really damage the clutch?
have the same problem?
