Hi
I'm after a bit of advice please.
I've had my new car for 3 weeks now and yesterday i noticed that the car would move from 3rd to 4th without using the clutch. it didnt do this by itself but all it took was a small nudge from me. It would also move out of 2nd in the same way but wouldnt go into any other gear.

My partner seems to think this is not a problem, some cars will do this, however i've never had this before.
The gears also seem very easy and loose in general.

Do i have a problem?

Thanks

Changing up without the clutch is quite normal on a lot of cars and bikes. Get the revs at the sweet spot and it should be quite easy. Tis how the straightliners (early 1/4 mile drag racers ) did it.

If anything you ( lucky person ) have a fully working decent gearbox !

I used to play this game years ago. Tried seeing how far I could drive without using the clutch at all, just changing gears by getting the engine revs just right. I find the i10 gearbox the wonderfully easy for changing gears, the best I've known.

Yep same here. Worth practicing too, I once had to do it for real when a clutch cable snapped on a long journey, fortunately cross country and at night.

Slightly :eek:fftopic: I know........ but way back when I rode a motorcycle, someone reversed into it....... it fell over and off snapped the clutch lever. It was about 3 weeks before I bothered to get a lever for it :thumbsup: it was so easy to ride without using the clutch.

Modern synchromesh is very good, but it will wear out in time. Better to be boring and conventional and use the clutch. :)
