Question Pressing the gas pedal to the max

Hello all,

I own a Sportage 2.0 CRDi Diesel (136hp) (Auto) for 3 months now.

One thing I noticed and its troubling me is when travelling at around 100km/h (or a bit less or a bit more) and I am behind a car that I want to over pass, when pressing the gas pedal to max (when you feel the click under your foot) it goes immediatelly to 4000rpm and around 4500rpm it kicks in the other gear in order to give the push to the car. But until it reaches 4500rpm it takes some time (it feels that it takes too long) which is not convenient when you need that PUSH immediately to overpass the car infront of you.

I hope you understood what I am talking about. Anyone else experiencing this?

Thanks all!

I can't speak to the other trims, but I know my SX gets up and goes, and it's as soon as I start pressing down on the gas pedal, especially when it's in Sport mode. But I'm sure there's a very noticeable different between the power in mine (241hp) and yours.

I don't have this problem with the SX model. But then again, your diesel probably gets much better gas millage.

Just to hazard a guess here, but it sounds like you are going down 2 gears. The first time at 4000 it is going down one gear and then when you keep the pedal pushed it is going down a second gear. I don't think your auto trans is programmed to go down two gears at once. You're not going to feel much pull on a diesel at 4000 but when you start hitting 4500 the torque kicks in. If you have the capability to manually shift with your auto (I haven't driven the diesel) like those of us here in the U.S., you might try manually going down two gears to pass. There is a safety function in your auto that will prevent you from revving the engine to much so that should not cause a problem. Try it and let us know.
