Two days ago my beauty started making a really concerning noise. I put it in 1st gear and start to take off slowly or if the parking lot, the car stutters and makes a hard thumping noise. The second I apply the brakes the sound goes away. It does it again when I go to reverse in a slow motion, the sound comes from directly beneath the shifter and only happens in 1st gear and reverse when moving very slowly. I took it to the dealership to get an oil change and the mechanic said I need a new clutch. The car has 54k miles and most of them are highway (long road trips from pensacola,fl to el Paso, tx) I don't drive it too hard but sometimes get on it. Has anyone had this issue before or any advice on what may be wrong with my baby?!
