Hi any thoughts on the following would be welcome. Purchased a A150 manual in July last year car was just under 3 years old and had covered 21k miles. In december it was noted that the clutch was starting to be dificult and soon it was impossible to select gears on initial start up etc. Will now only drive if started in gear with clutch depressed etc. Had the car in at our nearest dealer who wanted us to pay for diagnostics etc, as the car had done less than 1000 miles in our ownership I decided that we should take it back to the supplying dealer who may be more helpful...(although part of the same group Stratstone) On booking the car in last Wednesday I had a discussion with the service manager who stated that it was unlikely that this would be covered under the Tier 1 MB warranty... Although not yet stripped down MB have offered to pay 50% towards the cost...this to me appears unacceptable for what I thought to be a premium brand etc.....any ideas / direction would be very welcome. Many thanks in advance. Brian Leeds.
