Thread: C2 Sensodrive Gearbox

  1. #1

    Default C2 Sensodrive Gearbox

    Looking to get a C2 VTR in a few weeks. What are the sensodrive boxes like to live with? Any known problems? Anything to look out for? Complete C2 n00b so any advice greatly appreciated!

    back on topic here, are they really that bad??? are they fralt with problems or is it just a make of choice.
    I had the alfa 'selespeed' auto transmion once and its a manual box with an auto change, is this the case with the sensodrive????
    The missus will be using it and will never us the paddles I know this for a fact as her A4 had a DSG gearbox and after 2 years she didnt even know the paddle existed.

    Having a sensor drive myself I have no probems with mine yet.....touch wood lol.
    Only thing I would say is when coming to junctions or round abouts it does have the tendency to take time to engage the gear you require. Once you get a feel for the car you select the gears before you approach so your kept in drive and not put into neutral if you know what I mean.
    I'm happy with the box myself. It's all personal preference: )
    Hope that helps?

    yeah around town they are a bit of a pain in the ass, because when stopping if not stopped for long enough it doesnt engage the correct gear but zamboni cleared it up you learn what get to put it in yourself.. In the country side i have to admit i enjoyed it more than my manual GT
