* this is a new car to me.

I just discovered this issue, and was going to post about it until I saw this thread. When I use to drive a gas car, a hiccup like this would be an indication I was in the wrong gear. Am I in the wrong gear?

Is there a fix to this, or should I just accelerate through the hiccup?

Thanks in advance

Good to know! I just ordered one. Even if it does not fix the issue for me it is a good preventative fix for the p2015 error code anyway. I will provide an update if I notice a difference.

Well, if this is a built in bug, why didn't my 2013 Jetta TDi w/DSG have this surge/miss? I haven't noticed this hesitation lately, but I have installed a Kerma tune. It's Miata weather around here. Since this is likely to be present once the temps cool down I figure it's something I'll just live with. Mine doesn't hesitate all that badly, but is felt. Seems like it's those days when it's cooler in the mornings, like around 50F or so and the engine isn't warmed up yet.
