Default Clutch life

Just out of curiosity, what's the expected clutch life, mileage-wise, on these cars?

That's great! 'cuz the warranty covers the clutch disc for 12mos/12,000 miles.

Probably too many variables to put a good number on this. Stop and go traffic will put a lot more wear on a clutch than cruising highway miles. Also very susceptible to wear due to improper operation.

The clutch would be considered a wear item. Same as brake pads, belts, hoses, and oil - not covered under powertrain warranty. Generally speaking, if you are able to properly operate a manual transmission (and aren't using your car as a taxi or delivery vehicle) the clutch should last the life of the vehicle.
