    Today the car had another hiccup.

    I was waiting to pull out of a road, when there was a gap and I went to drive off. I went to pull away, when there was no power at all from the engine. It's as if I didn't press the throttle at all. I looked at the dash, and the ESP light was flashing for 2-3 seconds and then all was fine. Now I went to pull away gently. I was very light on the throttle (like I was pulling off a drive or something) and the instant I noticed the car wasn't going anywhere, I came straight back off the throttle. But the ESP was still flashing away for 1.5-2 seconds after I came of the throttle?

    It only did it the once and it's working fine now. Just wondering if this happened to anyone else?
