New car has problems

I bought a 2015 Evo X GSR used from a dealer. Has 26,000 miles on it. owned the car for 20 days and the throw out bearing is making noise. Mitsu wants to do a tear down to check TOB and clutch components. I bought a 3 year 36,000 mile warranty when purchased, but clutches are normal wear and tear like brake pads so arent covered. Extended warranty says they would cover some of the parts probably but before i do that and then get a bill for hundreds of dollars, i am pursuing the selling dealer to fix this for free. Any opinions on who should pay for it or advice for me? Bought used from a chevy dealer.

Throw out bearing at 26k miles... that's a bit too soon. Also, Clutch is a wear item, but TOB that early is kind of a non-wear component.

Did the vehicle have one of those Sold As Is or Limited Warranty stickers? Sold as is means you will be on your own for the repair since the dealer isn't liable for anything you find or have issues with after you left the lot with the vehicle.

Yea idk what the previous own did for the TOB to go so soon, thats why I got the extended warranty just incase he messed something up. Also, the dealer told me they provided a 60 day 2000 mile warranty, then i purchased my 3yr,36,000 mile warranty. Im going to the selling dealer monday to see what they say.

Why did you buy an additional warranty on a car that already has a 5yr/60k powertrain warranty??? Sounds like the dealer took you for a ride.

I am not sure who is a chump here... :/

If owner of the vehicle on craigslist is knowledgeable, you would have more luck with that guy then a random dealership.

Ihave owned a 300z, a 350z, a mazdaspeed 3, a cbr 600, bought my wife a 2011 GTI, found a buddy a s2k, found an evo ix for another friend ALL from Craigslist. ALL are still running flawless. Just requires genuine research and paying for a pre purchase inspection at a third party reputable performance shop EVEN if you’re buying from a dealer ESPECIALLY. Chevy selling a mitsu lol the dealer deff played you BUT no point to cry over spilled milk, figured I’d share my experience.

I’ll tell you what previous owner did, he rode the clutch and dumped it like a Sunday morning dump truck. So your next step needs to be to go to a reputable shop and bite the bullet about installing a new clutch not the same dealer who sold you a beat down clutch to begin with.

Mitsu 5yr/60k powertrain warranties are only for the first buyer, I asked a mitsu dealer and they said my evo does not have a factory warranty anymore, hence the 3yr/36k warranty i bought from ali auto. Also, the whole point of me saying i wouldnt buy from craigslist is because you cant purchase warranties when you do that. I know evos have problems and I would rather have a warranty so i dont have to dish out money when things break. It is my daily.
