Just curious, is there a typo when you said '120000' and meant 12 thousand kms?

Am not boasting anything, but I feel this is quite short time for clutch & timing belt overhaul! I guess the Fiat parts must be sturdier than Maruti! Correct me if I'm wrong.
Yeah even I had the same reservations since many of my friends have Swift Diesel and they are about to cross 1 lakh kms without having to go for clutch overhaul. But then these were the two main things I had to consider as well.

1. Swift (75BHP) and my FIAT-GP-90MJD(90BHP)
2. Kerb weight of Swift : 960 kg while FIAT-GP-90MJD : 1198kg
3. Others (to be filled by automobile experts in Team-BHP)

Although I had to shell out INR 35K, but it feels like I just got a new car for that price.The car literally feels just out of the showroom. The clutch pedal feels like knife in the butter and the gear shift is smooth and well what should I say about the FIAT diesel engine roar, I've fallen in love with my Fiat all over again.

Apologise for the late response. I had no access to my computer for 10 days. There is no type I have done 2 Lakh 26 thousand Km as of today. 1Lakh 20 twenty thousand Km is correct.

Thank you for the reference. I finally got around to meeting him at the Darga rd MASS. In the meantime i had kept the car running by frequently adjusting the clutch cable tension, so as to minimize the slippage. Mr. Dilip Kar advised a clutch overhaul costing around 5-5.5K, which I think is a small price to pay for getting back the driving comfort I've sorely missed over the last few months.

I'm still apprehensive because sometimes the gear shift process is smooth when I start in the morning and it gets progressively harder by the day. Any suggestions ? Could this be occurring due to the worn out clutch unit or could this be something with the gear assembly ? By the way the odo now reads ~60K
This I think happens if there is a fair bit of drag between the clutch disc and the flywheel surface. Even with the clutch pedal fully depressed, the clutch disc does not fully separate from the flywheel surface. Consequently the cogs of the gearbox keep rotating, albeit very slowly, due to the rotational power still being transmitted from the engine via the dragging clutch. Thus the dog clutch, which is the business end of the gear lever, finds it difficult to mesh with a gear that is still in motion. Hope this answers the question...

My cousin came visiting yesterday in his 2007 Honda Civic which still looks pristine. On looking at the odo i saw 162746 kms,
and the car has not gone through a clutch change yet.

My Skoda Octavia 1.9 TDI stands at 165000 KMs. The clutch has never been changed.
I wonder how it has lasted 3 times a usual clutch lasts.

My driver does drive the car very gently, but its just astonishing.

Default Re: How many KMs before clutch overhaul

My Innova D is now 10+ years and 1.15 lac kms on the original clutch. Its driven by me primarily and at times by my spouse. In the last few days I find that while downshifting from 3rd to 2nd the gear does not engage properly and tends to slip. Is it to do with the clutch or the transmission? The clutch though is holding very well even now and there is no rubbery feel or anything of that sort. What could the issue be?
