Hi I have a new 2007 Elise and am loving it with almost 2k on it.

Since new the car while under non-aggressive acceleration seems to either lug or have the clutch slip (like-symptoms).

We know it is not the clutch because during the hesitation/lugging going to WOT clears the problem.

This happens anywhere from 3-6k rpms (in 1st-2nd-3rd gears) so I do not believe that the problem is lugging the engine.


We have brought the car to the dealer but have not been able to reconstruct the problem because it also seems that after the oil temp (not water temp) has warmed up the problem seems to clear. And again by driving aggressively there are no symptoms.

We were wondering if this is normal with this car because of the low torque and or hp. I hope it is not because i hate waking the neighbors going up our hill with the stage two:evil:

We have searched for symptoms like this but nothing that defines exactly what ours are.

We thank you for your inputs.
