Transmission problem hardly there but don't know the cause. In fact it only occurs when the car is slightly in the wrong gear and it starts to judder all too easily on acceleration. Not gearbox as can occur long after a gear change and timing fine on complete idle with no accelerator.

Car's done 55,000 and has always been a forgiving smooth drive. Just think this might be the start of more serious transmission problems down the road if I don't get it sorted.

If l correctly understand what your saying you're problem is, can you make this occur.
Are you sure you actually have a problem, l know that sounds stupid but I can make my engine do it to.

Do you know what the engine rpm is when it judders?

It sounds to me like the engine rpm is so low (as you say "the car is slightly in the wrong gear") that the engine is struggling - remember this is only a small 1.0 litre 3-cylinder engine so you need to keep it in the correct gear to maintain smooth progress.

You put that a lot better than l did.

I look forward to the answer.

As you correctly say I am causing the juddering if marginally in the wrong gear and maybe there is no problem at all. Just I have driven 40,000 miles with no complaining by the car so something has changed
Maybe older cars just aren't as tolerant. I do tend to drive to maximise fuel consumption but the car is definitely asking for more throttle the last month or two. I'll see how it goes.

You could try giving it a service. Forgetting about fuel consumption and change gears as required.
If you have A/C don't use it so often.

My A/C is on 24/7/365 and I never have any problems.

Check the condition of the air filter, try some fuel system cleaner and cleaning the throttle body, its likely a build up of gunk/dirt causing it.
