v6 Clutch Engagement point

I noticed today that the engagement/disengagement point for my clutch really seems to have changed since new. My car (a 2LT v6) is now about 3 weeks old and has 1200 miles. When brand new, the clutch started to engage just barely off the floor. Now it seems to have "moved" up so that engagement doesn't really start until about half way up and is fully set with just a couple of inches of "up-travel" left in the pedal.

How does this compare to your v6 clutch?

- mine too. Might be something to get checked out, if the changing continues.

But neither of you noticed it being lower initially? Hmm. I guess I'd say mine is similar to yours now.

My engagement point seems to be within 1/4 travel off the floor still. 1,500 miles.

I know this is a hydraulic clutch, but where could this difference come from car to car?

Isn't there an engagement pad or plate that would probably wear in a bit thus the change in peddle travel? Should not serve as a problem though with half peddle.
