Driving away cold

Post by Cwjr » Thu Jan 16, 2020 9:33 am

Hi everyone. Only had my c3 aircross 1.2 smaller bhp model engine for around a month now. Loving the car but finding it very juddery/stuttery when moving off in 1st gear when the engine is cold, when the engine is warmed up its really smooth.
Is this a characteristic of the small powerd engine, maybe combined with my driving style? as I have had diesels the last while??

You shouldn't have any issues pulling away cold. We have no issues with out 110bhp C3. There are electronic anti-stall aids which should make pulling away easy. How quickly does the problem go when warming up? The reason I ask is that issues like this should be looked at by the agents, but it may be difficult to demonstrate the issue unless the car can be left overnight.

Yeah ideally to get it looked at properly by the dealer they would need to have it overnight. Goes smoothly after say... A few miles or so.

Sorry should of said also mine is the 81 bhp model
