So I'm driving home from work, pull up to a stoplight, push in the clutch as usual, and it stays on the floor. You can pull it up by hand to normal position, but that doesn't solve any problems. With the clutch on the floor, the car will start. With the clutch pulled up, it will not. My dad was able to drive it to the stealership though by matching RPMs and shifting without the clutch.
The clutch has never slipped, the transmission has never popped out of gear or failed to go into a gear. I've got 117,000 on the odometer, and there were no warning signs. Any thoughts about possible problems and/or repair costs?
I'd really like to know how much people have been charged for this problem. I've been reading through the archives, and I've seen everything from $600 to $3,000, mostly in old posts about cars with very low mileage. I would much appreciate some feedback from someone who has had this happen to a car with higher mileage recently. If it's $3,000, I may just have to trade it in for what they'll give me against a MkVI or a used MkV.
