Just been driving my wife's 1.6 (04 plate) and its pretty obvious the clutch is slipping. She said last time she mentioned it to the garage they said to leave it for now as it would be "expensive".
Admittedly its been at least 10 years since I had a car that needed a clutch changed but it can't be that expensive or complicated can it? It's only a 1.6 petrol. Surely about a ton for the clutch and 2 or 3 hours labour?
