I have just purchased a brand new C3 Picasso VTi 120ETG6VTR+ petrol engine car. My previous car was a Nissan Primera 2 ltr. automatic which I had for over 15 years. Most cars these days seem to come with a lot of unnecessary and confusing gadgets and my new car is no exception. However, my purpose in writing is to report that there is one aspect of the my new vehicle which bothers me and it is this. When I drive away and the engine is changing up through gears from gear 1 through to 2 and 3 it seems to lose revs and the car slows noticeably until I press down the gas pedal. Is this the experience of others with this type of automatic gearbox and can anything be done to make the acceleration smother or do I just have to get used to it? Any comments/advice would be welcome.
