Re: driving experience megane 3 hatch

I had a similar experience (I've got the same model) with mine at first. I tend to slip into 2nd gear virtually as soon as the car is moving. Doing that with the Megane 3 caused a hesitancy in it picking up in 2nd. I now hold 1st a bit longer and maintain a very slight pressure on the accelerator pedal during the change which has cured the problem. I don't think it's any kind of gearbox problem - probably engine management thinking we're about to stop!
I went from a 2 litre 8v Mk1 Megane RXE to this one. The Renault salesman did tell me to keep the revs up more on this one. The old one did have a lot more low end torque and always pulled away strongly. I think it's a matter of technique.
