  • Is this normal or strange?

    Everytime I start the car and move the car, either forwards or reverse and get to 10-15mph, the accelerator pedal feels strange as if it pumps for a second, it only does it once, after that it doesnt do it, as if its calibrating something when its gets above a certain speed. Is this normal?

      Thinking about it, it feels more in the gearbox, wheels?

                  Even tells you about it in the manual - that magical mystery book that lives in the glovebox

                  Easy way to test - start car, move off (it clonks) pull up, then move off again (no clonk) pull up switch car off completely then start car, move off (clonks again)

                        I know it only does it the first time I pull off, after that no clonks. Great, feel abit of a plank now!

                            Don't worry about it - it's been asked quite a bit on here over the years so your not on your own

                              I have been abit old school for the last 10 years, had Corsa B's and a Calibra, all not newer than 95'. The VXR is the first of the newer Vauxhalls Ive owned. Its alittle different! Its nice having a car thats only just over a year old and not 16 like the Calibra!
