    Default 120 cdti diesel engine

    I recently bought an 08 plate Zafira with the 120 cdti diesel engine. At 55mph as i accelerate in 6th gear it judders till it gets above 60mph!! Is this normal or not. Its still under warranty so no probs if its owt major. Thanks

    55 mph is kinda slow to be in 6th. My Veccy is a 120 and i never use 6th below bout 65. But asyou do have warranty,if your at all worried it might be the dmf, get it back for them to check it out.

    im in a 150 and 6th gear use is a rarity to be honest. It's a motorway gear and it's there to save fuel, use it when you're up around 70/80 mph. It will def judder at lower speeds so never worry.

    Thanks for replies lads. I usually put it into 6th at 50 then as it nears 55-60 it starts to judder, not like when you select a too higher gear. The whole car judders as the wife has commented from the rear seat that she could feel it!!. I'm taking it to VX tomorrow to have it checked out to be on the safe side. Thanks again. Steve

    I had this on my car and it was caused by the exhaust touching the chassis right under the gearstick, must of been done by botteming out over a speedbump or something.

    I still get a small vibration at about 1700 rpm through to 1850 rpm which I am still unsure what the cause is, I think it is something to do with the inter cooler or turbo. Will be interested to hear what the cause of yours is.

    Vx said it was normal for the 120bhp cdti. They also said that vx save money by using the same 6 speed box in the 150bhp and 120bhp variants. The 150 can cope with 6th at lower speeds where the 120bhp can struggle. So all appears fine.

    It depends on how bad the judder is, if it just a slight vibration then it would be the same as mine, but if worse then I wouldn't be so sure, does this only happen in 6th gear? what if you are in 4th or 5th when you should be in 3rd does it do the same?

    Mine is always at around 1700 rpm

    Any other 120 owners here getting the same?

    it only happens in 6th at about 55 mph to 60 mph. My post above is what the dealer said after. First thing he asked was, 'is it the 120bhp'. when i confirmed it was he said what i posted above. Just use 6th as a motorway gear.
