New to JC...bought 2001 VT exec TODAY, everything about it cosmetically beautiful, drives as smooth as brand new until it goes over 100km. It will go from 0 to 130km fine and smooth. It will sit on 100 fine. But if you accelerate when on 100 to go up to 120 it starts pulling/jerking slightly until it gets to around 130'ish. I don't know any other way to describe it. The car doesn't jerk but you can feel it pulling during that acceleration...any ideas to ease my mind. TIA.

wheel alignment?
Might be a good idea to keep to the speed limit if your driving on public licence roads. If you say it drives fine up to 100km/h than that's good for 99% of roads in Australia.

But as above comment suggests. Wheel alignment of perhaps suspension issues?

Could be a fuel starvation issue, as in fuel filter blocked and not allowing enough fuel through.

Is it like jumpy?
Duel fuel?

I took it up to 130 only for test drive otherwise I drive like a nana. It was suggested I do that to suss out the transmission...? It's not the wheel alignment, it doesn't pull to the left or right etc. I haven't explained properly, told you I was new to this. It's more like a stalling feeling...I'm hoping to get it in for a service tomorrow before a long drive for a pick up at airport tomorrow. Much appreciated.

I would be looking at the spark plug leads, the usual cause of a miss
