1996 Ford Ka from UK and Ireland
I have just taken the car in today, but the gears keep sticking. First time it happened I was stuck in traffic and no matter how hard I pushed down on the clutch, it would not go into first or second at all! So I had to pull away into a lay by in 3rd gear!! I told my partner, and obviously me being a woman, he assumed it was me and left it. 2 weeks later it happened to him when he was driving and it got stuck in 5th and then again in neutral!! Then he believed me!! Ha!
I'm not sure whether this is a sign that the clutch is slipping or if I need a new gear box??? Can anyone shed any light???
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
