how long should a clutch last .

Hi m.c.n. i would like to hear your views on if a clutch should need replacing after only 2373 miles. in three years.it needed clutch springs,spring plate pressure plates,and friction plates.i had an m.o.t and a oil change at the same time the bill was £709.00 is this reasonable.
