    It's hard to believe but Rudolph went from this (1st photo) to this (2nd photo) in just two year. But now it's time to get the creature comforts off the ground.

    Hi, I'm new to the forum (Bought a 2010 Clio Dynamique 6 weeks ago). Driving home last night I was unable to change down into 2nd gear and subsequently unable to get 1st or 2nd. I managed to pull away in 3rd and got to a point where the revs went up but my speed didn't increase. I can get 1st...

Although now my car seems to occasionally not go in to first and second correctly, sometimes it will be in place, clutch up but when I give it some gas it does nothing(sometimes pops back in to neutral)...

    Dora is usually so happy in France but apparently doesn't like the Paris ringroad. Any suggestions why she's suddenly started to slip out of 1st gear accompanied by a thumping noise from underneath and jolting along would be much appreciated. Background: just done around 200 km on main roads...

    Hi Has anyone any experience with this type of engine/automatic and a loss of power in 1st? It drags on for a while with hardly any power (which can, if not careful, catch you out when pulling out of a side street), and after a while it'll bump up into 2nd and start to finally pull with power...
