    Is It My Driving Style

    Hi I've recently bought my first diesel car a Focus Estate 1.8 TDCI 115ps on a 02 plate .69250 miles My problem is it seems very slow to pick up from 1200 - 2000 revs when pulling, but once over 2200 rev and the turbo comes in its off like a steam train and then its a race to change up a gear then we start the process again,I'm wondering if its my style of driving being a truck driver and being told to change up early and let the engine torque do the work or if the car as some sort of problem <_< Cheers
