Hi,

My 2008 drives like a cross channel ferry. At speeds below 30mph the kids call it the 'pigeon car' because it hesitates, then lurches forwards, leaving them rocking backwards and forwards!! Feels like a problem with fuel supply / fuel injection (although I am not technical).

Took it to the dealer today - typically, couldn't reproduce it on the roads around the dealership, and they couldn't find a fault. I can see this is going to be one of those problems where I am back and forwards (like the car) to the dealer trying to find a fault.

Waited for ages, costs a fortune and now don't like it - wish I had bought the Hyundai IX35

That's really interesting - I thought it was a problem with my individual car, but looks like several others have exactly the same problem. I will send this link to the dealer for comment!

Yep - same with mine.

I spoke to the dealer over the phone, and he was quite dismissive about it saying he hadn't heard of this with any other 2008. I'm booked in for the first check in a weeks time, so I'll mention it to them then.

I wouldn't mind an update from you if you find anything out, then I can have a chat with my dealer.

Cheers
