I just acquired this 3.0tdi sport I notice that in town or just pulling away from a junction etc
the car wont respond to throttle,unless you just tickle it,it more or less wont answer, then after a slight pause it responds and takes off,this can be quite annoying, also for the drivers behind, as you could quite easily be tail ended ,
apart from this the car drives well,on the motorways etc has anybody experienced this problem
norrie :oops: :oops:

Not a characteristic of the 3.0 TDI that I've encountered. Fuel problems? Filter? I'd be straight back to the supplying dealer - it's not right.

By the way, welcome. Hope it's sorted - its a cracking engine for this fine car.

i experience this problem only in D, not in S or manual mode.

also, normally after breaking and ready to go again, rather than having sat still for a few seconds.

resetting the gearbox learning fixed it for a while, but i think its a "feature" of the gearbox learning your driving style?

i always flick into S mode if i approach a roundabout or junction that i know i need to get away from quickly

How do you reset the gearbox learning?

Not sure if it's in the manual,my attention span isn't long enough to read it.
I saw how to do it on the forum some time back,tried it and it works.
Eventually ,of course,unless you change driving style it will revert.
However,when I did it the change was noticeable.
