Hi Mike, thanks for the reply.
It's a 1.8 TDCi, I have had it since last September, only had 6k on the clock when I got it. I still have manufacturers warranty on the car.
After reading a few postings on the forum the concensus is that you have to keep the revs high when pulling away, which I would agree with, however the issue I have is as I said at low speeds it is very unforgiving, its not a good car at slow speeds at all.
The car has been driven by a Poilce driving instructor (shouldn't be anything wrong with his driving techique) and even he found it difficult, me thinks I have been fobbed of too long and as you suggested I will be going back to the dodgey dealer next week to see what other explanation they can give me. Wish me luck as they like most garages are adept at fobbing you off.
