For the last week or so I've been having a bit of a problem with my ST with 4000 miles.

The three symptoms are:

1. When driving on side road (25-35 mph) I have the feeling that when stepping off the gas pedal the car glides for sometime. No deceleration

2. When revving at idle the rpm don't seem to come down as fast and as regularly as they used to. There is a pronounced pause around 2000 rpm.

3. I seem to have more turbo lag that I can remember.

Could a loose fitting in the intake be the cause?

I have experienced #2. A pause at 2000 rpm. I just assumed it was to keep rpms up for a smoother shift?

Hi guys,

I'll be happy to loop in your customer service managers to look into some options, if you'd like. Shoot me a private message with your VIN, mileage, best daytime phone number, full name, and dealer name/location if you want to take me up on this. :)

Wait... Do I have an issue? I haven't brought my car to the dealer yet. Should I be taking it for that?

I'm not a technician, so I am unable to diagnose concerns or determine if someone has one. Since you guys brought up something you were wondering about, I wanted to make sure you all knew how to contact me if you did decide something needed inspection by your dealer. Just covering my bases. :)

Also, Happy Mardi Gras!
