No clutch problems and no weather stripping problems... but have speedo issues... I just shut off the speedo so I wouldn't be annoyed. Waiting for better weather then taking it to dealer for repairs. Also have whining noise from ps pump, wheel hop, gauge cluster electrical issues and shifter rattle.

Elctrical Gremlins seem to be a common issue with the '04. Pontiac thinks it is a software glitch.

can you elaborate on "clutch problems" - that's pretty general.

slippage ?
chatter ?
noise at idle ?
car fills with smoke when clutch engaged at 5000 rpm just kidding

weather stripping - where ?
