bought car brand new, clutch went 4 days off lot at 435 miles
My son just bought his car in May with 5 miles on it for a safe road trip to LA. In Las Vegas his clutch went out on him. Mitsubishi says after looking at 3 pics from the dealer it was abuse, but we find that very hard to believe. They do not indicate what abuse but claim he must of have abused it. We stated he drove through the mountains in Colorado then made it all the way to Las Vegas and it went. Just beginning pursuing for repairs through manufacturer and local dealer. Vehicle is still at lot in Las Vegas.
