Hi, my 1.5dci scenic has always been very slow, i can never feel the turbo even if i red line it, it drives fine, engine is smooth, and is economical.
What could be the prob?

probably nothing. the turbos on diesels are very progressive, you usually can barely feel them, even if you know they are working.

You say it is slow. What speed do you get on a level road? It should pull fairly steadily to 85mph or so. No experience myself never seen more than 70 on the motorway:)

ok, its not slow, as in i can hit 80 on the motorway, its just the getting there!

a friend with the same vehicle says its nippy, which mine just isnt, its more "flat".
also my bro-in-law who services and sells used cars drove it and thought is was very slow, as did the mechanic who just fitted shock tops.

when overtaking its dangerous, you pull out, realise you havent enough power and pull in again, and thats dropping to 4th at 55mph!
