Hi,I have 2017 i20 SatNav, bought from the main dealer as brand new and done some 5 900 miles.The clutch on this vehicle is so nervous and biting point is unlike other cars I have driven is too high up.When moving off the car rattles and shakes unusally too much.I then took the car to separate main dealers and they found no problem at all but advised to give a bit extra gas before the clutch which is what we do normally when I and other users drive off but the problem still goes on.Any body else who has this problem before.Thanks.

What is a clutch? :grin2: :laugh:

Seriously though, I am old enough to remember that driving a stick was required in my drivers ed class. Well not that old - I just had a very good school back then.

It seems there is so little interest in stick shift now that the engineers have just given up refining them......... for many reasons....... $$$, no competitive motivation, etc.

I know it is different on then other side of the pond, but still it is a declining market.

Yes, sorry. Clutch is terrible and I still can't get a smooth setoff. 1.2 21k on 3rd clutch and it's shuddering again. Hyundai not interested and say characteristic of car.
It's either over rev and risk burning the clutch or don't give any gas and let the antistall work and change upto 2nd straight away. Not great but after 18 months and numerous visits to the dealers that's that I'm afraid.
Can't wait to get shut.

Pardon me, but A CLUTCH EVERY 7,000 MILES IS A "CHARACTERISTIC"?!?!?!?!

I'd be looking for a car with different "characteristics". >:D

What dealer in their right mind would want to replace a clutch under warranty???
So, they will say whatever it takes to get you to go away.
Wait for you to burn up the clutch and then say it is a consumable and you will have to pay for it.
Just my thoughts.

Personally, I hate car dealers cause they only see you as a dollar sign.

Disagree. Mine's pretty good (they know I know about cars. ;) )

Mine is also a 1.2, I've posted elsewhere in this forum about jerky power delivery low down.

My opinion (which I think a few others share) is that Hyundai's throttle map just isn't very good. Certain drivers will find the car very notchy in its power delivery below 2k rpm. It wouldn't surprise me if that would then result in rapid clutch wear (or a misdiagnosis of clutch problems followed by unnecessary replacement).

As a "characteristic" of the car, it is not a very pleasant one.
