Renault Clio Gearbox & Transmission Problems

Problems with Clio transmission?

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Jun 2016

We haven't had any specific complaints about the transmission in the Renault, but no dual-clutch auto should be above suspicion. Getrag supplies transmissions to many carmakers, Renault included. The troublesome Ford PowerShift transmission is also a Getrag product.

Why are clutches regarded as wear and tear items?

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Feb 2016

There is no inconsistency. The clutch in a regular manual car is operated and controlled by the driver but the clutch pack in a double-clutch setup such as those used by Ford, Renault and Volkswagen is controlled by the car's computer. So any wear or damage in a double-clutch is a fault in the car and not down to the driver.
