My Sedan is also having the this juddering feel when moving from standstill. I thought it was normal. Got it checked yesterday and SA said my clutch needed replacement.

Besides that i'm hearing a motor humming sound also during acceleration from standstill. SA said it might be related to the clutch. I'm not totally convinced but just have to wait and see.

I'm told to expect up to a month of waiting for parts and then a 3~4 day for installation & test.

belom lagi sensor! coz my fofie's temperature reading goes crazy!!! i been waiting for more than 2 months coz they ordered the wrong one! also have to change steering coupling coz everytime i turn my steering got sound!!! still waiting patiently Sad
the sensor has arrived but since they can only change it during weekdays..have to wait looor for the steering coupling delivery!

haiyaaaa sedih laaaaa.....

Sorry to hear about your problems. I considered sending my car to the Penchala SC because they have a shorter waiting list than PJ (When I called up, they say I can come the next day!!). But, I have more faith in the knowledge pool available at a SDAC SC when it comes to these kind of problems, and the SA Salfiril prove to be a competent SA indeed. If it comes to authorised SC (not SDAC), I'm not even sure if they have the latest TCM update. But you are right, the parts waiting period is abysmal, although at the time of sending in, Salfiril told me they may have stock for the clutch pack if they have to replace it.

I can't speak for your other problems, since my experience is only with the clutch and TCM. Hope you get sorted out soon, but don't be upset, at least the car is driveable.

Just curious, when you say temperature reading, you mean your coolant temperature, or the ambient temperature that is displayed at the meter cluster?

Bro Dares...yup it's the ambient temperature reading...it goes up to 55 degrees celsius in the early morning or at any pont of time especially during traffic jams!!! Mad Mad

For all those affected and the car is manufactured after July 2012, you may try your luck at SDAC branches especially the PJ to check if a clutch replacement is really necessary or just a TCM update will do.

I am not sure if the TCM update is available at authorized SCs ie. non-SDAC SCs. Just call up and ask.

this clutch part is a valid issue here.
go get replacement, or wait for major service.

or, why don't you try mention this clutch issue even you don't have the issue, during routine service.

What to say to the service assistant aka receptionist if you want them to perform these checkup? Afraid they will say this is 'normal' again...

Tell them your clutch is slipping and you are experiencing judders when driving. If they tell you it's normal, go to another SC. It is a known issue for such a long time if they tell you it's normal you should burn that SC down Suspect

My fofi also same symptom!

Shaking at low speed when wanna shift from gear 1 to gear 2, regardless i floor my accelaration or not. Sometime the shake is so bad, sometime the shake is slight. Only happens when the car starts to warm up, maybe around 10-15 mins drive.

I went to SDAC and let the SA test drive. He said it could be software related problem, so he updated the TCM to the latest and asked me to drive around and see if it still shaking or not. At first it was OK, but after 10-15 mins drive, it starts to shake again, same thing, shift from gear 1-2 shake. I drive highway, I city drive, I floor my pedal, I go light on my pedal, sometime the shake is bad, sometime the shake is slight. Not as smooth as I first got my car!

And my car only clocked 4000 plus km around 2 months!

Omg...that nightmare occured to me. I requested for tcm update upon sending my car for servicing. Guess what...when the SA called me to collect my car, he told me that my fofi is experiencing clutch leakage. That's y it jerks during transition of gears. He told me that the part will arrive in 1 month & i hv to leave my car for 3 days at their wshop. Benciiiiiiiii

This might help, I've been practicing this for quite some time now.....

When in traffic jam,

- Never let your car creep (move without pressing the gas pedal), always apply a bit of throttle to move your car. This is to keep the clutch from slipping which almost certainly happens when your car is creeping.

- In really bad jams, use the hill grade assist aka sport button aka that button on the side of your gear stick, or shift into L. This is to prevent the gearbox from shifting into 2nd gear too soon, and to keep the clutch from opening (the clutch remains close after you release the throttle to provide engine braking).

A lot of wear happens during jams when you apply throttle to move a few meters and then release the throttle, the gearbox happily shifts to the 2nd gear, the car slows down because you have release the throttle, then you press the throttle again....what happens? clutch slip lor because car moving too slow for second gear..

Happened to me too before this. But the problem seems just disappeared about 2 month ago and haven't came up again.

Been on business travelling from KL - Perlis a lot recently and so far my gearbox is fine. Smile

Been reading bout this clutch issue and yes it happened to me,a few drops of gearbox oil leaks every week or 2 weeks,send it at puchong for a check up, so they will replace the sealant and clutches as well..but here is the best part, they say i can drive as normal without worries. The replacement parts will arrive in 3 weeks...hope after this there would be no more problems
