    Default Kickdown

    Driving home from work i decided to overtake an OAP doing 25 in a 60, i was on an open, straight stretch of road and built my speed up to around 40-50 and usually when i press a bit harder on the gas the car shoots off, but tonight i literally had to have the pedal to the floor before it moved!!

    Is the car maybe requiring an oil change, as it can feel quite sluggish at times?

    I had a granada auto many years ago, I don,t know if the Vectra auto works the same but I had to sort of press the throttle quite sharp [ sort of stamp on it] to make it kickdown, When was the car last serviced.
