    Guys, I'm having a problem with my new A3, it started happening a week or so ago and is steadily getting worse. I had the car into the stealers yesterday and explained in great detail the problem, but they failed to find the fault /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    The problem is this...

    mostly when stopping at a junction, traffic lights etc. The car will stick in a particular gear, the clutch will be nearly to the floor and the gear stick wobble about as if detached from the gearbox.

    It takes approx 5-6 attempts to try and change gear, sometimes the problem resolves itself after a few hundred yards of driving.

    anyone have any ideas, the car is booked into the dealers on Tuesday.
