am happy to wait for a while longer if it means that my problem may be solved
the mileage is 160,000 km and the car is serviced very regularly. there has never been any fault lights showing up on the dash - no warning light of any kind. if you accelerate gradually the fault seldom shows, but if you put your foot down any way hard it gets very bad and doesn't accelerate properly - at all times it won't go much over 80kph. the fault started just before christmas so in the new year it was serviced by a local garage who couldn,t locate the fault. two weeks ago and again this week it went into a diagnostics and service garage - they have all the specialist equipment for citroen, renault, peugeot and volkswagon. as the grandis has a volkswagon engine we put it in there but on neither occasion could they find a fault. nothing has been replaced to try and solve this - just the usual filters etc at the service.
