I have a 2008 Captiva that we bought second hand last September with 34000 miles on the clock. It now has 40000 miles.
Last week the clutch failed without warning and it was recovered to a garage.

Turns out the fly wheel is knackered and the hydraulic bearings.

garage ordered a clutch which didn't fit then discovered a cracked pressure plate.



Never in all my 30 years of driving has a flywheel gone.

Seems the only parts that fit are chevrolet main dealer parts which has put the cost up considerably.

I do not think this type of failure is acceptable in a 3 year and 8 month old car.

Anyone else had this problem and also problem with non main dealer parts being either incorrect or unavailable.

Im a very unhappy Captiva owner as Im sure you can imagine.

Cheers

I have replaced a flywheel on a Porsche 968 but that had over 120K on the clock. I would take it up with Chevrolet, they might contribute something towards it as a goodwill gesture.

It does happen. One of my work colleagues with a 1 year old Volvo just had his flywheel explode (literally). Of course in his case it was still under warranty.
