Part has failed 3 times. (1)@65K miles. Clutch slave cylinder failure.while coming to a stop I push clutch pedal in and it didnt release, and addition the clutch did not disengage creating a stopping issue. Could not get out of gear, causing the car to lunge forward when forcing to a stop.stuck in traffic. (2)@77K miles. Clutch slave cylinder failure. While coming to a 4 way stop during rush hour the clutch pedal when in and didnt come out. Unable to change gears. Car stuck in traffic. (3)@83K miles.clutch slave cylinder failure. Pulling into garage I go to push the clutch in and the car keeps moving, almost running into back walll of garage. Clutch pedal went in and didnt come back out. Clutch slave cylinder failure again. Having that same part fail with increased frequency its certainly isnt the way I drive my car. Oem part lasted 65K than oem part lasted 12K than oem part lasted 6500 miles. I love this car so much I bought a car lift to replace this part myself. Dealer charges over $1100 to replace a 75 dollar part. But it is very dangerous to have this part fail. I have been very lucky that no person was walking by the front/rear of my car while I push in the clutch pedal or had it failed while trying to park. This last time I noticed a shudder from the clutch pedal prior to part failure.
