    My clutch went out already in my 09 Tacoma at 25,000 miles which is 90% highway miles, anyone else have this issue. The dealership is covering it under waranty, thank goodness.

    Consider yourself lucky they didn't play the "wearable item" clause

    My factory OEM pressure plate failed the spring tabs at 1046 miles and was replaced under warranty, and the TOB had the chirp from 22k and was replaced under warranty at 56964.
    The truck have been used hard but never abused, the clutch disc is the factory OEM.
    From day one if you played with the clutch in tricky sections, it smells, if you do the same in 4lo the smell doesn't show until you get out of the cab, I guess the PDM TOB Kit and Centerforce Disk combo will be used next time.
    I hope the Flywheel holds and don't become an issue.

    Just outta curiousity, not trying to hash your driving abilities but I'm curious how many people are burning out their clutches and how many are just failing? No doubt theres obviously something wrong but I've ridden with a few people lately who like to ease the clutch while the vehicle is a 2-3k rpm... recipe for instant clutch burn.

    I've driven sticks for 30 yrs, and the 6 speed trans is Ok for a truck, but the clutch assembly is weak to say the least, my 6spd is running as smoothly as day one, but the clutch leaves me wondering all the time, it slips too much when you work with it.
