I've had my Karoq about 3 months and done almost 3000 miles. It has kangaroo'd since day one. At first I put this down to it being a new car but it still happens occasionally. It tends only to occur when I first get in the car and driving at low speed, so mainly when I'm leaving a multi-story car park and can't get the speed up. It's a great car all round but this is a real pain at times.

Quick update.

Took my car to my local Skoda dealer & they were excellent - great customer service :)

They advised me the VW 1.5 TSI throttle/kangaroo issue is expecting a Q2 fix.

They also adjusted my auto parking brake which was releasing too late making the biting point hard to judge/unpredictable.

This has made it easier to balance clutch and accelerator when the car is cold to avoid kangaroo hopping & easier to pull away quickly without it bogging down with too low revs.

Just need that fix in Q2.

Thank you Jezza; it is always nice to hear a compliment or a change.

Care to name the dealer? It may help somebody else.

Have fun,

If everyone would put their locality (top right) and model, engine size and g/box in their signature, it would make it much easier for those trying to help to respond!
