should i just let my jerky focus be and drive it or should it be repaired for me

this is a folow up to my last post bout my ford focus zetec automatic car bein jerky

im just wanderin whther i should bother the service guys about this jerkyniss or just let it be????? ( dun read the rest if u dun want i just want u to answer this question)...

it isnt reeally that bad like exceeissive jerkyness im just back from a long drive on the motor way tryin to blow out the cobwebs like someone told me to in the last post

it jerked maybe 20 times lol for a 1 1/2 hour drive(stil to much)

what i mean by the jerk il try explain it in detail

when i drive off the mark or at low speeds it jerks i dun mean like a hold then jolt forward that would be fine to me, i mean a dam clunck sound a real jerk but then again ther is to types of cluncks one is not a jerk and happens when i accelrate fast or "floor it" this one is not a problem as far as im concerned , ( i call this a hard hold not a jerk)

its the other jerk when im not even goin fast or accelratin hard at all it just jerks ( this pisses me off) and only happens when im drivin less than 60 kilometres not when i have the speed up...

beautiful car when it doesnt jerk looks great feels great ...

Why would you consider letting it go?

Obviously there is an issue which the dealership should sort it out for you.

Not something I would put up with..

take it back to the dealership, put the service manager in the car, take him for a ride and physically show him what is happening, DONT just describe it becasue things can get lost in translation.

Zetec 3-Door Manual, Ink BlueWhippet (Bundy) on the back seat busting to get out and run, and White Fluffy Dog (Chardonnay) on the front seat with her head out the window
