Err, we only got it in May this year with 65K on it, Wrinxy. The pedal had a "sticky" feel to it, which I'm told is something to do with a nylon sleeve which wears, and I had me trusty mechanic fellow try to ease it. It may well be that some lubricant found it's way onto the clutch plate but I don't know. I'm just kinda preparing myself for the cost of a full clutch replacement.
The GTV is strictly a weekender for us and we intend to keep for a long time, gradually bringing it up to a high standard. the previuos owner doesn't appear to have been an Alfisto and it's suffered a wee bit of neglect.
