Request to all Cupra TDI Owners

All,

After only 19,000 miles my clutch has started slipping. The car has not been chipped or modified in any way.

My dealership say I'm not covered on the warranty, which I expected, but I'm going to contact head office anyway direct given that I think 19,000 miles is poor for a modern day clutch. Dealership also said that by coincidence (is it I wonder?) another identical car with only 10K has similar problems.

Has anyone got any similar experiences?

(Needless to say if they don't cover this, its goodbye to a brand I have become attached to over the last few cars (Ibiza Cupra Sport and this Leon TDI)

Cheers in advance

22000 miles in my FR and I sometimes think it slips too but not often enough to be the clutches fault.

are you the only person that drives it...do you ride the clutch at juctions, the clutch is a hard one to prove its faulty. but 20k is low for a clutch. Peronally i'd read the warrenty handbook and find out whats not covered, it is a wearing part after all.

Good point mate just remembered my 20vt suffered a master cylinder failure at 30k complete with sticking pedal.
That was replaced under the warranty, didnt cause the clutch to slip though just hard to disengage.

My clutch seems fine, just under 10k... Although the gearbox feels a little sticky

12k on mine and it slips all the time, don't think the remap has helped, but from what I know, its not a strong point on the Cupra Tdi.

Going to try it on the with the dealer come service time to get a new one under warrenty, otherwise its a helix one for me.

I have seem totally new cars with clutch slip still in the dealers lot, so it's not that surprising.

Thanks for all the replies.

To answer some of the questions, its had a mixture of motorway and town driving and although both myself and my wife both drive it, none of us ride or slip the clutch like say those oldies

The warranty says 'fair wear and tear' which is why at <20K I think I have a case.

Anyway will keep you informed what Seat Customer Care say.

IMO anything under 50-60K should be replaced under warranty.

one thing i might add "just for information":

most of the more recent 130/150 come standard with the LUK clutch, which in fact does tend to slip a bit more than the Sach units. I have seen both slip from new though!
