About 2 weeks ago, I noticed the engine revving higher after shifting. I thought at first it was just loosening in the car over time and perhaps I didn't notice at first, but I decided to take it in this weekend. Unfortunately, on the way home from work the revving after shifting went from an extra 500 rpm to 1500-200 rpm and the clutch started to occasionally lose pressure (though it would come back after a minute). I also noticed at this time that the car's shift light was starting to tell me to shift up while in top gear. Today, the mechanic got back to me and said that the only thing they found was that the clutch disc was worn out. Now, I am not the best driver, but everything I can see is I would be hard pressed to ruin a clutch after 24K miles. Also, I only had symptoms for 2 weeks and I would expect to notice slipping more than 5 miles before failure. I do not ride the clutch. I do use half clutch to get into 1st. Thoughts?
