    Hi all,

    New to this forum. I have a Mercedes-Benz A-Class 2015 model which I bought from an approved dealership. One female previous driver and less than 40,000 miles on the clock.

    I’ve had the car for 8 months and from day 1 I’ve had a problem switching from 1st to 2nd gear. I feel like I am crunching the gear as I can hear a slight noise at times and I can feel how it isn’t a smooth transition. It is also stiff feeling.

    I have my foot fully down on the clutch and I change slowly and how I always have with my previous cars. So I just don’t understand it. This doesn’t always happen. Sometimes It glides from 1st to 2nd smoothly, other times it’s a common occurrence throughout the whole drive.

    Took my car to Mercedes, they say it’s fine and no issues. My friend has driven it also with no issue. Am I being paranoid, are the gears just like that or am I actually somehow crunching it because of something I am doing?

    Feeling really paranoid as I don’t know if I am damaging it. Any advice is most appreciated! Thank you.
