Q: My clutch slips but it was replaced not to long ago

asked by on

2010 mazda 3s hatchback manual transmission 6 speed bought the car with 100,000 miles clutch was serviced and replaced at 85,000 miles, car now has 105,000 miles. i can still drive the car and such but it feels like the clutch is slipping, i can start out going fine and all but if i accelerate any harder then about 25% like merging onto a highway the engine will rev higher and the car will not accelerate faster, then the rpms drop down and its a game of keeping up with the clutch disc and the flywheel it seems like. could this be the fluid level, master slave cylinder or would it be recommended to have a full clutch replacement?

My car has 103500 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
