Time to bleed clutch on 12' GT

I dropped my Mustang off at my dealer cause I was having the 1-2 hard shift issues and my clutch pedal stuck on a couple of high rpm shifts. Originally I was gonna drop it off on Thurs but the service manager said it would be better to bring it on Mon. I found no issues with that and agreed. I dropped it off [email protected] and got a rental from them cause he said it would prob take atleast a couple days with the transmission issues. I called on Tues at 1p and was told the service rep I was dealing with was at lunch. I get a call at 315p from him saying my car was ready to be picked up. I saw no issue and figured maybe they had to replace the clutch or something significant in order to have my car for about 16hrs and charge me for a rental for 2 days. I get there and I was told by the serv. manager "Your tranny is fine its normal for mustangs to shift like that. You had air in your clutch lines so we bled it." I'm a slightly miffed by the whole thing cause they seemed somewhat dismissive about the tranny issues and I see no reason to have a car for 2days to bleed a clutch. So what is a reasonable time to have a car to perform this? I would figure 1-2hrs for diagnosis and 1hr tops to actually bleed the clutch. Is that unreasonable? It prob wouldnt be an issue if I didnt have to pay for a rental car. But when I buy a brand new $30,000 vehicle I dont expect to have to pay for repairs or alternate transportation. I'm asking cause I got the customer satisfaction email from ford about my experience and didnt want to blast them unnecessarily. Thanks guys!!
