It is a common feature with modern clutches. My Mondeo used to stink for a few days after a "bout" of reversing, the clutch just sees to get very hot. If you use an Alko stabiliser try releasing the friction pads before reversing, it does make the turn that bit easier.
By the way.....
My old car was sold on to a work colleague (his request, from the leasing company) at eighty odd thousand miles.
He had only owned the Mondeo for a couple of weeks and the clutch fell apart.
