Thank you Richard for taking the time to read through my question. Yes I purchased the vehicle new. It now has approximately 26k miles. I’ve always noticed the hesitation from the beginning and I thought it was my imagination but clearly it wasn’t. The dealer told me that it was normal but then again most of the time they tell you it’s normal for just about anything. I thought that perhaps someone else was complaining about the sane problem. I guess for a small engine I’ll have to live with the issue. And yes all the maintenance has been done up to date. I’m going to try switching the Econo on and off as you suggested and see if that makes a difference. I don’t like driving with the Econo on as it just performs so poorly (lack of power) but for experimental purposes I’ll flip the Econo on. Stay tuned!
