synchro Posted March 14, 2003 Report Share Posted March 14, 2003 I am experiencing a weird acceleration problem in my MY'00 S3 which as at about 27500km now. The engine is actually doing great, thanks to the long highway trips I've made recently. A few days ago however, I've noticed that when accelerating on 3rd gear, at a point around 4500rpm, there is a sudden stop in acceleration. The engine keeps on revving normally but the acceleration is almost completely gone. More weirdly, this does not happen every time. In fact, when I try the same thing immediately afterwards everything goes on normally. I talked to the service about it but they were confused as well. They said if there were a serious problem it would happen every time the car accelerates. Anyone experienced something like this or have an idea what it might be?. I remember the threads about inconsistent performance of the S3 but this just didn't feel normal to me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
