I have started to notice this judder when the car has sat still for a couple of days! Should this be doing this or should I be taking it back???

No one seems to know why its doing this or what the fix is - so unfortunately I've learned to live with it

By all means see if your dealer/garage can figure it out, but I wouldn't be holding my breath..

I haven't tried different modes yet, but have you tried using it in manual and auto? Does it do the same?

Re: Dualogic Gearbox

It shouldn't be..

If it blows up then just get it replaced under warranty and get another one that judders!

Re: Dualogic Gearbox

Ok, a long time since I have been on here, but I thought I would update you on the Dualogic problems.

It still judders when the car has been sitting for a few days without moving. Also, it now doesn't always select reverse gear. This has nearly caused a couple of accidents.

I took the car back to the dealer who kept it for the day. They couldn't find anything wrong with it. They suggested that the juddering could be caused by a build up of corrosion on the fly-wheel it it hasn't moved for a few days. This would then resolve itself once the corrosion had come off after a few gear changes. The reason for not selecting reverse everything couldn't be sorted out. They are going to think about it and may change the clutch firstly, to see if that helps.

Has anyone else managed to sort this one out??

Thanks

Bodatron

Apparently there's an update to smooth this out.. (though dealer couldn't find it for me)

Re: Dualogic Gearbox

Hi There just joined the group,
I just bought a new Grande Punto last week with dualogic transmission, as usual with this "special" gearbox they are not in the manual, don't forget italian don't really love automatics, they love cloches!! By the way there is an additional book who comes with it just for the dualogic transmission.
I usually got the bad abit to read all the manual on the first day i got a new car and forget everything the next day but something that sound funny to me was that yes at some point the Dualogic manual says to leave the car in gear when you off the engine, i have to double check this with the manual as soon as my wife will come back with the car and conifirm it with you, but yes that noise when you off the engine when the car is in neutral is really annoying but did not try to leave it in gear and see what happen.
I hope this help
Have a good day
take care
Sergio

Yeh you're suppose to leave it in gear when switching off and have it in neutral when starting up - otherwise it'll beep at you.

Re: Dualogic Gearbox

I'll be taking my car back to the dealer to sort the reverse problem out. I'll let you know what happens.

My dealer also said there wasn't a hand book for the daulogic, but a very nice person from Fiat UK saw my comments on here previously and sent me one - so YES it is available.
