I have a 63 reg Dacia Stepway, over the last few months I have had a shudder when engaging first gear and pulling away. It feels as if my front wheels are spinning, but not using the clutch quick enough to spin them.

The dealership say they need to work on the gearbox and clutch. They say if its some damage caused by me it will cost £1000 to replace.

Has anyone else experienced any issues with the clutch / gearbox in first gear ???

hi there, is it only 1st gear? Is it a diesel or petrol? Do the revs rise at all then drop back down while in gear accelerating?

hello. I wondered why Dacia wouldnt be fixing this under warranty? What dealership did you go to in Essex?
...the OP says 'They say if its some damage caused by me it will cost £1000 to replace' therefore if it is not damage caused by the OP it will be a warranty repair

Hi there . I wouldnt accept that unless youve done 20.000 miles in your first year and wrecked every cars clutch you ever owned. Brand new cars would have to be totally abused to damage a clutch in such a short space of time. Do you use the stepway for pulling a caravan? Sounds like a manufacturer fault.

Hi Steven6968

Did you manage to get your car sorted, my sandero stepway has been doing the same thing.

I took it into a dealer and they said the exact same thing as what was said to you, I then contacted Dacia Customer Services and they agreed to pay the dealer to open the gearbox up to find out what the problem is. After the dealer had my car for 2 weeks they finally came back to me saying my clutch plate needs replacing which is down to wear and tear(my car has only done 22000 miles). They want to charge me £339 just for the clutch kit.

Surely this is something Dacia needs to look at as after a little research I have found out that this is quite a common problem

Hi mikemj, are you able to give me some details of how to go about getting it fixed on the warranty?
