It sounds like you have a real case against them. I would look for a more reputable dealer, try google reviews. Even if the clutch is wear and tear, your trans should be covered by the warranty. Offer to buy the clutch and have them put it in with a new transmission. A few hundred bucks out of pocket is your best compromise.
Worst case, you find a mechanic buddy and buy one from LKQ roughly $1700. 2 in the country.

Did you have the recall done on your transmission?

Yup, both have them have been done
Since the second recall was a software update, the only obvious sign that it was done is the appearance of the gear indicator above the odometer. Do you know if that was present, which would help confirm that the recall was done correctly?

Sue them. Per se.

It is not difficult. Not even expensive.

Yikes. So it sounds like Stellantis' software kludge to prevent excessive clutch slippage isn't working in real life. And it seems JL's out there with a manual transmission are still potential grenades.

Maybe Stellantis should market these Jeeps as a weapon for the military.
