clutch burning up at less then 7k miles would burn me up. is there a lemon law where you are at? I don't know if this would be enough to qualify. maybe a local news station would like to do a story and embarrass your local Saab dealer into doing what would be right. where I live a local station does these kind of stories and they get results. gee whiz less then 7k miles the new car smell is not even gone yet. except in your case burned up clutch smell may overpower it. my wife and I had a ford product that at 15k miles and then less the 30k miles we had to put in a major brake job. the brakes would all of a sudden start grinding and then the next day we were to late. had to pay big bucks to fix. was told it was how she was driving the car. and no she doesn't drive with 2 feet.
