I have a brand new Ford Transit, it has only 2000 miles, the other day on the motorway the car wouldn't go into gear properly in a traffic jam. I could only use 3rd and 4th gear. I managed to get the car off the motorway but then struggled to get it in gear at the traffic lights, the car then started to smell strongly of burning. I rang the AA and they took the car to Ford and they rang me a few days later saying the clutch had burnt out and it was down to my driving.
They stated they had pictures of the burnt clutch and I would have to pay for a new clutch, I have been driving since 1987 and never had a clutch go on me before, also the car is brand new with only 2000 miles. Could this be a manufactures fault as I don't seem to be able to do anything about this as they have the so called proof of the burnt clutch?
