So I was having to reverse out of a very steep hill this morning, I drive a 2016 Golf S (Non-GTI). Anyways it was super steep and of course this car doesn't have a ton of torque...and those that drive it know how the clutch is a little wonky.
Anyways I think my foot was on the clutch too long as I was trying to continually increase the throttle but the car was still moving forward. I finally got it going once I reached the bite point but I could smell what is def. a bit of burning clutch smell.
The car drove fine after, I tested putting it in 5th driving down the highway and putting the throttle all the way down and it wasn't slipping or anything. It shifted fine as well.
It's only got 26k miles on it...is it probably ok? Surely the clutch is tough enough to handle the odd instance of abuse every so often?
