I have experienced the exact same thing that you have described with the engine hesitating, but I have the 2.0T engine. I did some research and I can tell you that we are not the only two having this problem, it doesn't happen very often but you just never know when it will. I read somewhere that one owner mentioned it when he brought it in for service and was told that it was a problem with the electronic fuel injection and that there was no fix at this time.Report it
