Default Rugged 1st gear!

Lately my 1st gear has been feeling funny. When im at a stop and start to acccelerate, as i let off the clutch i get this sort of hard jerking feel as if im about to stall but im giving it plenty of gas. I've had the car for 2 years and had never had this problem untill now. Its only starting in first as switching thru the rest of my gears is fine. Any Ideas wuts wrong?

The classic "clutch judder" issue shows up from day 1, so this is more likely to be something worn or broken. Make sure your clutch fluid isn't low, then have a mechanic try it out.

agreed, that doesn't sound like clutch judder. (Which can show up later in life, i've seen it happen on other vehicles at least)
