2004 Evo 8 - 25,000miles. Only had car 12mths and the clutch has starting slipping at about 3,500 rpm, dealers haven't looked at it, but have decided it's definitely got to be replaced - at a cost of £1100. How long should the clutch have lasted.?? (Female driver - approx 10miles a day), and could this possibly be an oil leak..??? Please help.

it is possible that the clutch plates are worn or the pressure cover is weak. Most bikes have an oil filled clutch to prevent overheating and plate wear. Check the manual for this or talk to a service dealer.
I understand that your engine accelerates fine to high RPM's but your car won't move. Since it is a manual transmission car, the problem may be in a slipping clutch. Probably your clutch is worn and slips.
You might need to replace your clutch.
it sounds like the bands on the transmission are slipping if it is an automatic trans if it is a manual the clutch is slipping if auto take to dealer. if manual adjust the clutch cable out some it connects to the transmission with a thick cable near the bell housing tighten the cable to give it less play 3 or 4 turns
It sure sounds like a clutch problem, You describe needing more RPM's which indcates a slipping clutch. If the shifter goes into each gear but the car doesn't move your clutch is gone or the linkage is stuck or inoperative. hope this helps, Chuck
