Complaint - Power Train

I BOUGHT MY CAR USED, 38 MONTHS OLD AND 33,000 MILES, AND NOTICED THE CLUTCH WAS VERY HARD TO PRESS DOWN. I THOUGHT SINCE ITS A PERFORMANCE DRIVEN CAR, THAT'S JUST THE WAY IT WAS. AFTER DRIVING FOR ABOUT 3000 MILES I WAS SHIFTING FROM 1ST TO 2ND AND WHEN I PRESSED IN THE CLUTCH THERE WAS A LOUD POP. THE THROWOUT BEARING SEIZED AND COMPLETELY DISABLED THE CLUTCH ASSEMBLY. I WAS TOLD THAT THE THROWOUT BEARING WASN'T SLIDING ALL THE WAY OUT SO THE CLUTCH WAS ALWAYS SOMEWHAT ENGAGED AND THIS IS WHAT CAUSED THE FAILURE. THEY SAID EVERYTHING NEEDED TO BE REPLACED; THROWOUT BEARING, CLUTCH PLATE, PRESSURE PLATE, AND FLYWHEEL.
