Clutch failed on my Skoda Karoq. Is this a known issue?

I have a Skoda Karoq 1.5 petrol manual, which had a clutch break at 11,000 miles. The disk is damaged and the dealer said it's due to inappropriate usage, which is not the case. I have more lots of driving experience and never had that problem with the previous cars I drove. Do you know if this is a known issue? My local dealer refuse to repair the car under warranty, claiming inappropriate usage. I've seen on the internet that other Karoq drivers had the same problem.

The clutch on the Karoq does have a high biting point, which makes it easy to ride the clutch. We have received a number of complaints of premature failures. I've added your to the list:

At 11,000 miles, I think you will struggle to hold the dealer liable for the burnt out clutch, unless you can prove it's a manufacturing fault. An independent inspection may do this.
