    Angry revs sticking on 1.8vvt 2006

    Revs sticking when changing gear. Dealers said this was normal, anyone else have this problem. Are the dealers telling the truth or are they spinning me a line.

    it's the truth..the VVTi holds the revs up during changes..it's part of the software programming..

    Yeah, I've got a VVTi and it does it. They all do it, perfectly normal and just takes a bit of getting used to. I dont even notice it any more you soon adapt to it.

    you sure do...

    when i picked up the last 1800 VVTi I drove, from inverness airport, it took me about 10 miles to get used to it ( i drive an auto normally) but after that it was hardly noticeable..

    When my car got attacked by a large tipper volvo i ordered a renter and a billy basic vectra was sent with the 1.8 lump , irritated the hell out of me , the car felt light and nearvous on the road and the hanging of the revs peeeved me right off , my old barge in comparison just feels more solid and together and now the rear shock s have been replaced it was attempting to corner ... anyways because ive injured my neck/back i couldnt live withthe vectra and got a zafira with the same engine , and its a LOT smoother to drive than the vectra but the same engine , not a bad little engine though poke it and it goes well , shame the gearbox in the zaf is total crap
