G/f went to set off today in her Polo that'd been sat since Saturday.
She said it didn't start too well - she had the key turned longer than usual.
Then when she set off, it wouldn't accelerate as normal. It was as though the handbrake was on, except it wasn't. She went into 2nd & it wouldn't go faster than 10mph.
She U-turned, and went up & down a local car park & it seemed ok to her then, but she set off again & the same problem happened.
My dad tried it later on & i've just tried it now & it seems normal to both of us. Not saying she's making it up as she wouldn't be, but...
Any idea of issue off this info as our local mechanic is on holiday for a bit.
I know this is a Vaux forum, but trust me, you ever tried getting info out of a Polo one?
