How does it compare to the test drive. I've had a long pedal throw on other vehicles and it was fine on them but it may be different on an SUV.

Hello,
my new sorento diesel (sept 04) also has the biting point on the clutch 3/4 way down, i have noticed that the biting point seems to be getting lower, i have also noticed on 2 occassions a burning smell from the clutch, so i am wondering if the clutch needs adjusting.
I was just wondering if your clutch has improved? Mike

Hello Phil,
I will keep you updated. Do you have any other problems with your car, any recalls etc? The only problems I have had are the recognised hard ride, I have lowered the air pressure in the tyres, which has helped a little. I have also hasd to have a new speedometer, which is electronic and situated on the gearbox. Apart from that ok. Mike

I have a 2004 Sori 3.5 LX and have had clutch problems for the last 7 or 8 months. It has under 25k mile and has had problems for quite a while. I have not had the time to take it into the dealer to have it looked at but now that I have they are saying it is going to cost around $1200 to have it fixed.
