My daughter's new Skoda Citigo is faulty - what do you think we should do?

Our daughter purchased a 2013 Skoda Citigo earlier this year after passing her driving test. The car is now developing a problem selecting first and reverse gears, which is worrying. The car was purchased from a local independent garage and the three month warranty has expired. What do you think we should do?

These cars do suffer from clutch and transmission problems. They always have. If it's clutch, difficult to lay liability on the dealer. If it's gearbox then he is liable:
