re: 2.2 JTS hesitation - now with new IMPORTANT information & escalation details
yes. This engine lurch is pants.
but the fact is, My 159 lurches. It didn't start lurching all of a sudden, it lurched from the day i saw it,drove it, bought it.
I personally didn't notice this lurch during my test drive and am now rather peaved at myself. Really, If I were to buy some new shoes thinking they would break in over time, only to find that they were actually 2 small, This is in essence what is happening here.
I also spoke to Ben Head and he told me that this is how the car is made and that an improvement is being worked upon. On the mapping it was said that yes it works but Alfa Romeo legally cannot do it until a full analysis has to be done on the effects on other elements of the engine such as C02 emissions and the entire car as an entity has to be re-regulated in accordance with global legislations.
Government takes time.
This, is what is causing the delay on a recall.
