2010 A3 TDI with 12,xxx miles - all mine. I am used to the DSG hesitation off the line as the transmission engages from a dead stop and don't have a problem dealing with it.

However, over the past 2-3 days, over the 50-60 times I have pushed the gas pedal from a dead stop, 4-5 times the car has had a secondary stutter with no power and it is scary if you are trying to pull across in front of traffic!

Maybe...just maybe, the initial jump off the line is recently a a little 'thumpier' in the driveline when no secondary stutter is apparent. Maybe something I could call driveline lash - almost like a worn chain on a motorcycle?

No engine codes and fuel consumption is great.

Continued problems with the occasional hesitation that does not throw a code. Two dealers say they cannot replicate it. Audi in North Houston had a recall flash for the engine ECU but the DSG is just as 'thumpy' and we get nothing like this on the 2010 Jetta tdi DSG we also have in the family. Love the look and the performance of the A3. Hate that it will become my problem at an intersection or at 36k.

Solved the problem in my own way - sold it.
