Re: T5 slow kickdown

T5 slow kickdown

i have noticed recently that my 2021 T5 has seemed to be very slow on the kick down for getting going, sometimes its a couple of seconds after the foot has been planted that it finally takes off, it also seems to some times feel like it is 'surging' when i have my foot down, have any of you had the ...
