I have one - Renault Trafic Diesel - May 2001 to 2011 (Y to 11 reg)
It has nothing in the book about the Quickshift Autobox
- Manual Gearbox Yes, Auto Gearbox No.
F****** useful that is
I thought it was me and it was the modern way of doing things, and that everyone else understood them perfectly, at least I am not the only one.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.

None of the European car manufacturers are currently breaking any legislation. Yes they have to comply with the law and not withold information but they also have the right to charge and impose restrictions (such a copyright, etc) on those who wish to pay for such.

As far as I remember this deal was thrashed out with Brussels.

In some way I can understand manufacturers wishing to copyright their information just as I would hate to see someone copy or plagurise my own book.
