HiI have a 2008 Allure EGC..My problem is if I want to start off quick..ie nip into traffic from standing my car starts off quick then slows down as though it does not know which gear to select..Its been back to the dealer 4 times now and |I get the usual "it does not show up on the download" so they assume nothing is wrong.I insisted a mechanic accompany me on a short trip.he said "oh they all do that" anyone any ideas ?

I also have a problem when approaching roundabouts. You can be travelling at a reasonable entry speed, there is sufficient time for a normal entry without inconveniencing any trafficalready on the roundabout, You accelerate but the box decides to change down which produces a considerablehesitation which delays your entry into the roundabout and makes you look an inconsiderate prat.

In answer to your question;


Hi

<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px; : rgb251, 251, 253;">The answer is "YES THEY ALL DO THAT" as her ladyship has found out. Apparently this is one of the quirks of having a 2008 with a gearbox bearing the name of "6 Speed EGC".

<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px; : rgb251, 251, 253;">"THEY ALL DO THAT" says that one must momentarily lift ones foot from the accelerator pedal whilst ones gearbox changes gear.

<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px; : rgb251, 251, 253;">Thus making for a smooth transition to the next gear whichever that maybe forwards, backwards or sideways.
