Over revving when accelerating
Got a problem and hoping someone can help.
I've recently bought a GTC 2.0 CDTI SRI. ( 2012, 51000 miles ) had it around 4 weeks and have an issue already.
The only way to describe the fault is its as if I press the clutch pedal while accelerating. usually around 60-70 and in 5th are sixth gear although its done it once in fourth. it starts accelerating ok then loses power and starts over revving just like I have pressed the clutch in. I let of the accelerator or drop down a gear try to accelerate again but the it still does it. then other times its fine. have also noticed a burning smell when this happens?
Does anyone have any ideas or info on this??
Could be the clutch.

Definitely sounds like the clutch. Had this in my old car and it was time to get it changed (or in my case scrap)
