The registration number is ***** There are no warning lights on the dash, and no excess smoke from the exhaust.
The car has always driven well. I got the plugs and filters changed two years ago thinking that it would improve performance, but didn't make any noticeable difference.
When I'm driving and want to overtake for instance, the car will rev up with the automatic transmission, but won't pick up. If I floor it, the automatic transmission will "drop it down a gear", and allow the rev counter to race up. When I slacked off, the automatic transmission will "change up a gear", but the speed hasn't significantly picked up. I have never managed to get over 80 mph.
I got the registration number wrong. It's SG04VHP.
No fault concerns. I had it checked out when I had problems with the abs sensor light. Had it hooked up to an analyser and the only faults that showed up were for the sensors. This was solved by replacing two sensors. Fault record was reset and no faults since.
I have always wondered if the automatic transmission was transferring all the acceleration to the drive. If it was a manual, it feels like the clutch is slipping and the engine is revving excessively.
