Hi. I bought my Antara in November from a dealership but lately been having issues. The car has only done 20000 and its started juddering between 1500 and 2000 revs. The dealship said it could be the fly wheel which can cost me 1400 but warranty could cover 500 of this cost. Has anyone had the juddering issue? 8t doesn't happen all the time but more than enough for my liking. I'm also having an issue with the handbrake as the car will not hold on a hill. I advised the dealership when I bought the car but still haven't corrected the issue because they're in talks as to who is paying for it. I've been on and off the phone to them for over 3-4 weeks now but they keep fobbing me off . I have no warning lights on the car either. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Yep EGR, I had a right game with it and convincing the dealershipA: I had a problem or rather the car did and I didnt !B: There were no warning lights and no codes stored, fortunately the service manager used his experience and not a computer and agreed it must be mechanical and the only thing mechanical was the EGR valve, replaced and that was at 12,000 miles, now at 22,000 miles so far all good. Plus I use Millers Diesel additive in every tank full to hopefully keep the system clean.
