Hi mate, this problem usually points to a failing clutch/dual mass flywheel assembly, it's not a cheap job so get a few quotes from garages that are going to use quality replacement parts and give you a decent warranty.:yes:.

A heavy clutch is a typical sign of a tired pressure plate assembly and can affect any car whether it has a DMF or not. At least you'll need to have a replacemnt cluch fitted but the condition of the DMF can only realistically be assesed with the clutch removed. If it is found to be faulty it may be worth coinsidering fitting a solid flywheel which will be cheaper and as many cab drivers have discovered it works just as well.:)
