What exactly is the clutch doing? Does it not disengage? Did the others start to slip? Has it been the same problems with all three?

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

Sounds as if they are slipping and wearing too fast......How's the cable adjustment?
Other than that, maybe the pressure plate assembly is knackered.....
I usually use PBR or Repco clutches in my cars, never had a problem with them.
