Hi Im writing this regarding my sisters car. As she is having no end of problems so want ideally for her to go back to the garage with an idea.
The car is a 1.6 206cc manual petrol it's covered 74000 from new, she is only the second owner and cares for the car like a child.
In the past 3 months it's had to have a refurbished gearbox in and a clutch now 5 days ago another clutch, garage changed the second clutch for free saying the first must have been faulty. Now again when she is pulling away the car is shuddering and from the left side front there is an audible knocking noise. It's a different problem to the first clutch as the first one just went out of the blue no shuddering just gave up. This one the car goes into gear fine pulls fine through the gears it's just when pulling away in first it's shuddering quite violently. Any advice greatly received as the garage at the moment are suggesting she is the issue not the car.
Not going to argue previous advice,
What I'm stating is you question had relevant information and was a welcome change.
usually we get asked "my car don't start"
And that's about it.
never what kind of car,
I'd suggest YOU take the car back.
you clearly know your beans.
