Hi all,
i have a 2005 QP with 4k miles ands it's started making a woorying sound when driving off from standstill. If i pull away with anything but the lightest prod of the throttle i get a squealing noise which sounds like either wheelspin (which is def not) or when i 've heard old fan belts on their last legs. The effect also seems to hold the car back a little from delivering an "instant" lurch forward.

The first few times i heard i thought perhaps greasy road or similar but it is now happening at virtually every set of lights unless i'm very very gentle on the throttle. will be booking in to dealer soon but just wondered if any other owners had experienced this fault or have any idea on poss cause

We had a QP that made a noise that sounds like what you are describing, and the clutch was replaced under warranty. Make sure they check the clutch settings at the same time.

This could also be the brakes at the point of hill-holder release.. Does it make a difference if you take your foot off the brake for a few seconds - until the car starts to roll, and then hit the gas?
