My MK7 R clutch was healthy at circa 37K miles when I traded the car for a MK7.5, which is doing fine as it approaches 20K miles.  Both cars are stock, and I've never been hard on clutches.  Apparently they don't survive if you tune for more power.  If mine ever goes, I'll replace it with something stronger.

Even if the dealer put the OEM factory map back on the car, the car couldn’t be sold by the dealer as an approved used VW with a warranty. I think VW only sell used cars sold through their dealers that meet the requirements of VW’s Approved Used scheme, and if a car has knowingly been mapped, then it doesn’t meet the VW’s requirements to be an Approved Used vehicle. 
 

If they did map it back to stock, I dare say that VW’s systems will have been updated to show the car’s history (remapped three times) so In the event of a future engine / transmission issue or failure, any warranty claim would be denied as VW would no doubt attribute engine / transmission issues to the previous remaps.

It can be really frustrating when these things happen. I’m sure the right car for you is out there though if you keep looking. 


Good luck with your search 🤞 

Thanks mate😎

I think it's just the luck of the draw. I've 74k on mine now and still on stock clutch. I'm not gonna change it unless I have to, I bought the car expecting to have to in a couple of months, coming up on two years ownership now and it's still perfect.

It's out of warranty anyway, so I'm not sure why this is even an issue? If you want the car, take it as a trade sale, but check the 142 point inspection report over first. If that's the only issue then you can always take out an aftermarket warranty.

VW give you 12 months warranty as part of their approved VW used car scheme.

Currently, you get two years warranty on used cars sold under VW’s Approved Used scheme;
