I have a 2000 model 3.5 litre V6 Jackaroo that has developed a clutch shudder. The vehicle has 85,000kms on it, but the shudder started some 20 or 30,000kms ago. Is anyone aware of this being a common problem? If so, the likely cause?

Peter, this a huge and common problem with the Pet Jacks, my father has a lease plan one and his mate at the same company does too, both have the shudder prob. Holden knows about it and they are both having the clutches replaced under warranty. The lease plan vehicle my father had before that also had the prob, not as severe but was rotated before solving the problem.

Get onto Holden and make them admit liability then get them onto it, I would be asking for a new clutch and flywheel machined first up!

Do you have the 5th gear whine as well??

Again Holden knows about this too, so get em onto that too, there is an insulation fix to deaden the noise. Aparently it is not detremental, just annoying!
