2011 Jetta TDI stalling at mid-range speeds

Hi, I have had this car since March 1, a little over 5.5K mi. Every once in a while, about 6 times total, I have been driving between 40-55 mph and the car stalls/hesitates. It is a very noticeable hesitation that is very short lived. I don't think it is just a fuel delivery problem since I have completely taken my foot off the pedal and then back on and it has a completely different reaction. Not as violent and it takes much longer. This car has the 6-speed manual and I usually keep it between 1400 and 1800 rpm.

Once my "03 Ford diesel pickup did this and it turned out to be a cam position sensor. Any chance this is the same problem?

BTW, other than this, the car is running really well. I did a run down to Logan, UT and back last week and averaged over 46 MPG

Fuel Pressure Regulator Failure

First time posting. Lots of great help in here...thanks!

My 2011 JSW (DSG transmission) with 28k miles stalled seconds after a DPF regen cycle while going under 5 mph in a parking lot.

Took it to the dealer and was told the fuel pressure regulator failed (and was replaced) but had nothing to do with the DPF regen cycle. They held my car for two days to get help from corporate to resolve the issue...I felt like I wasn't getting the entire story.

So far so good but not sure if this is just the beginning of future fuel-related issues. I otherwise love my car!
