Renault Master drive train fault
Anyone else had a problem with drive train judder, going uphill around 50 m.p.h, in fifth gear. Last year I noticed a judder in fifth gear after about 2000 miles on my Lunar 592, it was only 7-8 months old and only when touring France a year ago did it appear to be getting worse. I took it to my local Renault dealer and they told me it was a recognized problem and they had it in for 3 days and sorted it. Touring Scotland this last 2 weeks I noticed the problem had returned, so I took it intoday and yes they said it was the same problem..... something to do with the sun wheel diff....... whatever that might be?. However this time renault said they would only pay 60% of the bill even though I have 9 months warrenty left and it is only 11 months since the work was done. I immediately got on to customer services who are saying it is wear and tear, so they are saying that for the same drive train fault in 11000 miles on a commercial vehicle that has been driven with over the top care, serviced regularly never exceeded 70 m.p.h, never driven by anyone else, is down to me.......... Ihave left them to think again overnight and come back witha better solution before I bring the world of legal rights down upon them but I need to know if any other owners of post 03, 120 dci master owners have had similar probs /????
