Hi - just for anyone interested - as per earlier links there is a MASSIVE thread on this on the T-ROC forum (70,000 views as of 11th feb 2019)Jezza2911 wrote: ↑Wed Jan 30, 2019 8:15 pmI've had my 1.5 TSI manual Skoda Karoq for a week. I love the design/drive except for the fact I keep 'stalling' at junctions and kangaroo hopping until I get up to about 20mph. Initial I though it was my driving position, but I am glad I found this forum.
I frequently have to pull away from very busy junctions. Several times now I have gone to pull away quickly, but the revs drop off and the car stops moving. Scary when an HGV is coming at you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is DANGEROUS and need fixing before I get killed. I now need to massively over rev the engine and slip the clutch to ensure I avoid the dead zone – this time of year this leads to the traction control kicking on as I screech off the line with a rapidly wearing out clutch.
There is also a post (by me) for anyone who finds the kangaroo/jumpiness too much and wishes to return their car (as you are entitled to do under UK law). This isn't encouraging anyone to do that - its to provide the detail /process for anyone that is interested.
Good luck to all!
