Hi Folks, thanks for the replies. olds98- i appreciate what you are saying my sister has the same model as you and i would agree its underpowered, however my car has the newer 1.6variable valve timing engine designed - allegedly-for good mpg with good performance from its 111bhp. I wouldn't say its underpowered for a 1.6 i do feel it to be quite lively, especially comparing it to my sisters car.
I have tried resetting computer a few times now and due to mainly town driving i keep getting these poor figures. I really do think it should be a bit better, hence i was hoping there would be someone on the forum with the same model that i could compare with. I'm planning to book it into the dealer after the holidays to have gearbox checked out for a 2nd gear 'jolt' when cold so will ask them to run a check.
