Thanks for the heads up Luke, and like mentioned above. Thanks for posting both side of the experience.

While we have a great dealership down here in Central Florida (Fields of Sanford), I wish you guys could open a dealership near me as well! Then I could order those too large to ship parts and just pick them up in person -

My nephew has a Nissan Altima SE-R and had a similar issue. I told him it was the slave cylinder and the dealer kept saying no, they said he didn't drive a manual car properly, blah blah blah. I made him take me there to talk to the head buffoon and he tried to give me the same crap. I then put 5- $100 dollars bills on the counter and said I bet you it's the slave cylinder so put up or shut the F up and if I'm wrong I will pay for that service on top of losing $500. Guess what he took the bet and I won and the ****** put the repair through warranty, so why didn't they do it from the beginning. It's two years past the repair and never even a hiccup again.
Why is it the the customer knows more than the factory representing dealer?

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

Because as the lead tech at Seaview Dodge in NJ told me, Chrysler does not support their techs in the field, we are on our own!

For what it is worth, after all the crap I have been through it has made me believe in what he said.

i might buy this, except in my case, it will still do it, with engine off, flat ground and ebrake off!!!!!
absoultelly no bind and no moving internals
there is no way, the clutch or the hydraulic system can be involved
