Even though I have the car since 9/10, today was the first chance I have had to do what I would call real driving. For the past 6 weeks, I have just been on short hops in the neighborhood. Today I was driving on a twisting road with speed varying between 25 and 45 mph (limit 30 mph). Several times, when I would back off the throttle going into a curve that did not appear to need a downshift, the car would buck like the fuel was being cut off from the engine. I was the same kind of bucking that you might get when you first learn to drive a stick and let the clutch out too fast, although there was no clutch action involved. I have not experienced the clunking sound that others have, nor have I had any problems shifting into 2nd (or any other) gear, upshift or downshift. I have driven many manual transmission cars and never have experienced bucking when backing off the throttle. I don't believe that the fuel is to be cut off completely when backing off. Has anyone else exxperienced this problem, or should I have the car looked at by the dealer?
