    W211 04 plate odd accelerator effect?

    Best way I can describe it! When going round roundabouts,pulling away from a standing start, or even crawling in a queue, the car sort of pauses then lurches forward. It's as if there is a dead spot on the throttle. It is most notable on roundabouts and damn irritating. Annoying part is...
