I have estimated that the price given is not to far off I figured about $900.00 for just a clutch change and the flywheel is very expensive at around $900.00 or so. This is about a 8 hour job.

This being the 3rd clutch for the car could this be considered a lemon of a car...I'm sick of buying new clutches Is that a problem with the 04 kia's??
Expert:  Daryl replied 7 years ago.
I have not seen these have clutch problems before, as for it being considered a lemon I do not think this would qualify although it does sound like you are having a lot of problems with yours.
