    Jetta stutters slightly under load...

    If I hit a pretty steep incline I can feel a slight stutter, almost like a misfire on a gas engine. It also happens if I accelerate a little harder than normal. Is this an engine issue or a DSG transmission problem. Car is a 2006 TDI with DSG tranny. 199K miles.

    Having had grey, black, silver, green Audis and VW's since 99 my wife would like a different color. These are Cranberry and Sapphire. No offense to those with white, but she had a white SHO one time and swore to never have another white car. Go figure. Thanks in advance.
