Usually For i10 gear shifting is usually very smooth. This Problem mite be related to clutch. Is the play good ? check with any other service station other than which u r showing now. If shifting is so harder then it mite be a problem with sleeve synchroniser also.
Hello Praz welcome to TAI and congrats for your i10. Regarding the gear shifts , i10's gear shift is real smooth generally. Either you are not engaging the gear properly or there really is some problem with the car.
My Car has only clocked about 130 KM. I had read in some other forum that due to the design of the area near the clutch we sometimes dont press the clutch fully.
So we have to use the tip of the foot to press the clutch fully.
I will try that today and let you guys know.
