    Help please. 2005 1.6. My car has a flat spot. When starting it you have to leave it `to sort itself out` if you give it any acceleration it will die.

    I have a Clio Dynamique 2015 Diesel. I have found the battery flat three times since I bought the car in Sept 2015 and could not find a reason, I thought it might be something to do with the lights. I took it to the garage where I purchased it and they looked it over and suggested I leave the...
