Touareg Throttle Hesitation/Delayed Acceleration
Volkswagen owners have been reporting accelerator problems with their VW Touaregs. The complaints allege a throttle hesitation leading to a 1 - 3 second delayed acceleration. The problem occurs when the Touareg is slowing to a near stop at speeds of 10 mph or less. When the driver attempts to accelerate, the engine revs before the transmission engages and sends the car lurching forward. The consequences of this happening when pulling out into a busy intersection or trying to avoid another vehicle has the potential to be disastrous, leading some consumers to call it a "death lag". The problem affects the 2004 - 2005 VW Touareg with drive by wire/adaptive transmissions.
