Aswell as this it seems like you have to give it a huge amount of revs to actually move when you do get the biting point.
Can anyone give me some tips on pulling away in this car ?
Exactly the same for me I passed their in June and I found it very hard to get used to but I did, I also learned in a Ford Focus which was a May 2010, I find a lot of cars are different as my mums car is a very sensative car when it comes to the pedals!!

Don't know if it's a fault with the Renault.
Currently in thomas17's garage:
2000 Renault Clio II S 1.4L Blue.
