RPMs stay elevated after hard acceleration?
Hi Jetta owners. I drove a new Jetta at the dealer and liked the test drive experience overall. It was the 1.4 liter turbo engine with 8-speed automatic transmission. One thing that concerned me was, I punched it when I had some room on a highway to feel the acceleration to ~ 65mph. It accelerated well, but when I let my foot off the gas - it wasn't even touching the pedal any more, the engine RPMs stayed high and only very gradually fell off, which seemed odd. In other cars I've owned, the engine revs fall rapidly when you take your foot off the gas pedal completely. Sales guy said the transmission would adjust over time to my driving and not hold the revs up. Has anyone else experienced this? Did it change to more of a conventional behavior over time? Thanks!
