I've recently got an nice little I10 1.2 which I'm largely loving except for the throttle response. I've scoured these and other forums and have noticed others complaining of similar things on modern cars, but to me it feels 'wrong' and I'm wondering if other owners can confirm what my car is doing is normal.


From idle (around 600 rpm) there is a noticeable delay of about 3/4-1 second when pushing the accelerator before anything starts to happen, which I can probably live with, but what is more annoying is that if I rev the engine up to around 3000-4000rpm then let off the accelerator, the engine doesn't immediately drop back down in revs.. it almost goes down in about 3 or 4 stages over the next couple of seconds or so. That is making gear changes VERY awkward, as I have to actually wait for the rpm to drop down. This is not only annoying but seems almost dangerous to me.


So, the question is... is this normal? Do modern cars behave like this??
