Gearbox

Post by Willy's jeep » Mon Jun 29, 2020 3:10 pm

totally rubbish gearbox. car at 18 months old. trouble selecting 1st & reverse gear. Even before that always very notchy. citroen had it in under warranty. and citroen UK authorised a repair. ie rebuilt gearbox at a cost to them of £2.300. they had my car 2 months.! Drove it home seemed OK like driving a new car. but within driving 50 miles the problem came back exactly as before 1st and reverse won't go in unless you slip clutch. got in touch with citroen who said they would strip it down again. but if found to be a part they had not replaced I would have to pay for it. I was totally disgusted. and did not want car any more. I had only had it 8 months. so sold it at a loss in 8 months of £ 4000. even new loan cars gear changes very notchy. for the age of car 2 years old the worst car I have ever owned in52 years. would never recommend or ever buy another total letdown

Did you try an other Citroen Dealer or did you contact Citroen UK?

Was it a 5-speed or a 6-speed gearbox?
