At 2500, are you at highway speeds? Know it sounds nuts, but had the same problem- 2400 to 2800 in high gear under light throttle would stutter like a bastard. Reprogrammed DME, never happened again.

We've got a Volvo XC90- design hasn't changed in a decade, so older ones are still contemporary looking. So log as you don't get the T6, it's pretty reliable and looks and wears well.
