I had bought a Toyota Corolla 2.0D Saloon, 2003 model almost an year ago. The car is running fine but I am concerned about its pick-up. I have to push the accelerator pedal, almost to floor, to reach 100 km/h and I can reach that speed (100 km/h) on very much a clear road. If I am not on motorway I find it difficult to reach even at 80 km/h on long route. My mechanic however says that it is normal for diesel engines and asks me to push accelerator that hard to accelerate the car. Can anyone share his experience? And please guide me that what engine part can be the responsible of poor acceleration so that I may go for its repair. The problem remains there even after air filter / oil change and diesel intake adjustment by mechanic. The car has no other issue and I am using it in rural as well as urban areas without any other engine problem.
Looking forward for your guidance.
