This problem is more of an intermittent "niggle" to be fair.

From having the crankshaft pulley bolt failure experience with the Picanto, nearly all dealers used a hit or miss troubleshooting method. Some customers spent thousands trying to resolve what was a known fault. The pattern was quite consistent, based on feedback from other forum users.

If I knew I could confidently go to the local dealer and be told the actual problem, I'd be all over it.

I did actually mention the problem to the dealer while it was in for recall work last year but they didn't find anything.

I mentioned that the earlier models suffered from something similar and was resolved via a firmware upgrade.

Well I decided to pull apart a few connectors in the engine bay and give them a blast with WD40.

Might have been coincidence perhaps but the low rev stutter is certainly improved!

I think my next stop might be to investigate the EGR if it comes back?
