Hi and welcome!

The 2.2 clutch is a bit of an unknown; some people have had them fail very early on and others are fine at similar mileages to you.
The only recommendation I have is budget for the replacement and then you'll have nothing to worry about when it does go.

Hi & welcome to the forum.

Don't worry about it. Everyone vents frustrations on forums, chances are you won't have any problems.

A clutch can go in any car, yes the 2.2 has had issues reported by people on this forum; but bear in mind how many people have 2.2s, the majority do not frequent this forum and I would guess that quite a large percentage of them have had no issues.

To the O.P., it is a case of something to be aware of not worry about. All makes & models have faults and forums like these are there to help. Try not to let it worry you.

I had the 2.2 in a 56 plate Accord and the clutch only started slipping at 127K. That was the original clutch.

Take the car out for another spin before commiting. Stick it in 4th drop to about 1K revs and then floor it! you should then see if there is any slipping

+1 You'll notice it first in higher gears!

Welcome to the forum mate! Just test the clutch on regular base, but don't have it ruining your ride!
