My clutch? on 2004 Hyundai Elantra

My Elantra seriously never had much problems aside from issues with the car battery. So yeah, my car is a manual transmission and the last couple weeks I'm having problems accelerating especially when getting on the free or trying to accelerate when the light turns green. I took my car into the shop and I'm told my clutch needs to be replaces as well as the sparkplugs. Why is the maintenance so much on a clutch replacement?

The RepairPal estimate for clutch replacement on your 2004 Hyundai Elantra is $491 - $664. That does not seem our of the ordinary. The transmission must be removed to replace the clutch. Here is a link to the estimate - https://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=4008
