Copied this from the maintenance section as I posted in the wrong place.

I read somewhere on here that a few faltering/misfiring type problems between 2500-3000 rpm have been put down to the interface between throttle bodies and head but didn't see any conclusion on what was physically done to rectify the problem - can anybody shed light please?

I think this might be the thread you are referring to.

There was never any final conclusion as to why some 2018 models were experiencing occasional dropouts.
I suspected a software problem in the ECU, but the dealer in this thread thoughtit was throttle body seals.
Still a mystery to me.
Laterally unstable unless moving.

Many thanks ChuckXC, that's the one.

I haven't suffered stalling on the go but faltering performance at about 2500 rpm to 3000 rpm meaning I'm constantly changing gears to get passed the 'faltery' revs. In addition, it has stalled several times when pulling away. I guess it is time to contact the dealer.
