Purchased a new demo with 22 km but 1 year old. Thought I got a bargain.
Finding that the driveline will “thump” occasionally , especially in 5 th or 6 th gear if held manually for a few minutes. I do extended country driving so instead of letting gearbox hunt up and down from 5 th to 8 th gear at around 60 to 80 km/h I hold appropriate gear manually.
Now the driveline occassionally thumps in general traffic in normal drive mode.
Car now has 6500 km and 4 months driving. Very disappointed

Hey, I’m in Oz, I have the 2016 2L diesel and it’s brilliant. only 6 gears in mine though. You must have 7 years of warranty, so why not just take it in and let the stealership do their stuff. cheers.
