    Question 3rd Gear Issue

    I have a std Coupe Turbo which seems to have a performance problem in 3rd gear.

    I say "seems" because the problem is only noticable when running along side my mates std Focus RS and my mates Scooby. Any other time the car seems to accelerate fine through the gears.

    1st and 2nd are about equal then 3rd allows them to get about a car length ahead until 4th gear which then allows me to keep pace again.

    Vauxhall have put it through diagnostics and report no problems.

    Its seems to have a distinct problem with 3rd gear.

    Anyone experienced the same problem or any know what it could be?

    Well could it simply down to gear ratios? 3 completly different cars, obviously not going to perform the same in 3rd gear.
