Burnt out clutch on a Volkswagen Caddy - can this be right?

I bought a Volkswgaen Caddy (manual) with 6000 miles on clock, clutch has now burnt out at 19000 miles. I there a problem with clutch/flywheel on these vans? It's 62-plate.

Volkswagen only warrants clutches for six months or 6,000 miles.
