Hi there I'm not sure if this forum is still active but I thought I'd give it a shot.


We purchased a 2006 Rexton RX270 xDi and so far are enjoying it. One question I had since I have not owned a turbo-diesel before - when I really punch the accelerator hard it seems to "pop" and "chug" until I let off the pedal a bit.


Could this be an issue with the turbo? Carbon build-up? or perhaps blockage in the exhaust or cats?


I just wondered if anyone had experienced this kind of thing before.

Yup, nowadays many forums have slowed down as many car clubs have formed their own group, own fb page or own forum.

For Rexton you can try Rexton hub.com, go to their forum or look for
