    I have a Kia Sportage (2014) which up until now has been trouble-free. The last few weeks though I have started to experience:

    – Sticky gears. Not sure whether my imagination but seems harder to change gears
    – 1 episode where I changed from 1st to 2nd with nothing happening but high revs
    – when starting the car in gear (reverse or forward) with foot fully on clutch the car is leaping violently forward or back

    The car was recently serviced with no issues

    Any ideas what this may be?

    Hi Stephen. Sounds like it could be the clutch, rather than the gearbox. Impossible to say whether it simply needs adjustment or a new clutch.
