Default tc cost of clutch replacement and clutch life

I have about 55k on my scion. the clutch seems to be strong, it passes the 3rd gear test (it can pull the car from a stop in 3rd gear)

i treat the clutch well, i imagine that it will last me another 20k or so. just wondering a ballpark figure for usual clutch replacement cost

what does every have? i don't race, but would like something a little sportier

I have about 72k on my 2006. clutch is deffinately going. Doesn't pull like it used to at all. and in some gears, 3rd especially I can feel little spots where it is catching more so than others.

what you'll need to do is check your clutch slave, usually the further apart between fork and slave ( no load) means you have more life on clutch, but if you notice them closer together it means its alost time for a new clutch.. some guys keep on driveing in this condition and it will damage your flywheel , more hot spots and possible scoreing..
