Question about Cars & Trucks
My Chery J11 (same as Tiggo) 2 litre automatic has had jerking on two occasions.
The first time was at 60,000km. The gear symbol on the dashboard was showing and the automatic transmission was making funny noises. I drained the automatic transmission fluid, very little came out so the fluid level was obviously too low, refilled it, and the problem was fixed.
The second time was at 94,000km. I didn't know whether it was the engine, the ignition system, or the transmission, as it was jerking and the transmission was trying to change up or down. I could only drive it very gently, or in manual mode (tiptronic).
I noticed that the engine was faltering in neutral, so decided to start with the easy stuff, the ignition system. I changed the spark plugs and the problem disappeared. The spark plugs looked OK! One of them had a small brown stain on the ceramic inside, but really, it looked fine. Anyway, that fixed the problem.
PS I agree totally with Bob Kirkwood's answer, could be spark plug/leads or fuel delivery.

It depends on how violent the jerking is? Could be as simple as a plug &/or lead breaking down or as complicated as a fuel delivery problem. Sorry not much help, but I don't have much to go on..

I've got a Chery J11 2.0L automatic built in 2011, which is the same as the Tiggo (except right hand drive for Australia).
I agree that the vehicle is a bit underpowered for aggressive overtaking, but I find that it's perfectly adequate for normal driving.
For overtaking at high speeds (we're limited to 110 in Australia), there's a couple of things I do:
First, turn off the air-con just before overtaking, as this uses maybe 10% of the engine power. This will give you a bit more power.
Second, leave a decent space behind the car you want to overtake. When an opportunity approaches for overtaking, start accelerating, so that you're already going faster than the vehicle in front before you pull out.
Only one other thing to suggest. You could maybe try premium petrol which might give better performance. I run mine on cheap 91 RON unleaded, but the manual says to use 93 RON which isn't commonly available in Western Australia. 95 RON is available, but it's more expensive, and for my kind of driving, I don't usually need the extra power. That's just something you could try - I don't know whether you would notice any difference.

Try disconnecting the battery black cable for 5 minutes to reset the idle speed. Also make sure you don't have an issue with air trapped in the cooling system, did you bleed the air out?
