    Not sure if I've asked this already...

    Anyone else got a JDM 659cc Auto?

    Mine is fine once it's going, brisk even, but 0-20 kmh I could walk faster. In fact it's flipping dangerous on the big roundabout near my house - I press go and only creep into the oncoimng traffic. There are a few heart stopping, shoulders hunched moments - until it takes off like a restraining rope has been cut.

    Imagine really, really bad turbo lag, or a two stroke power band - but I don't get it in gear if I use the tiptronic to force the revs down into the same range. I wondered if it's the transmission oil or some such?
