My '85 Turbo 16 manual 5 speed doesn't do this. Although I think all early turbo cars do occasionaly display this characteristic when being driven gently. Mine has done it. Or rather I can get it do it. Not quite sure what I do to avoid it...I've just learnt to drive in a way which prevents it happening. The early 9000 turbos are known for being lumpy in traffic apparently...

I've driven automatics, they don't do it. I've driven >(many) 900's, and they don't do it either.
