Default 2012 TDI running poorly

I am new to the forum however I do have a question: I own 2 jetta's 2006 and a 2012. The 2012 has 60,000kms and recently when started cold it has a miss until warm. It also hesitates when excelerating. VW dealership tells me they are working on a fix for this computer problem which affects 15% of the cars. They are unable to create a fix and meet the emmission requirements of Canada so until then the car runs very poorly. Does anyone else have any other information relating to this topic Thanks CL

Never heard of this problem before. Do you have the dsg trans? How long does the miss last? How cold is the ambient temperture when the miss happens?

My 09 with 160,000 miles just starting running rough at a cold start. I give her a little throttle and she smooth's out. By the time I get to the end of my road (1/4 mile) she runs normal.

My 2006 has 170,000 Kms it has never had this problem. The 2012 has had the EGR flap on the exhaust replaced and some adjustment to the computer but still the same. It runs rough for about 10 mins then is better, Both cars have the DSG auto trans and have no issues.
