THROTTLE SURGE-LAG
By Gman on
Vehicle
2011 Volkswagen Golf 2.5L PZEV 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
Review
Automatic transmission from a dead stop especially on a slight incline. If you get off the brakes and on the throttle too quick just a light touch on the throttle it causes an immediate Surge then Lag all within one second. Rather annoying and dangerous when in a parking lot or close behind another vehicle in stop and go traffic or pulling into your garage. The service guy says it is because it is the flywheel engaging because it is really a standard transmission with electronic control rather than an automatic transmission. Whatever, just fix it. Yamaha fjr1300ae uses a similar electronic transmission set up and is smooth as silk in 1st gear. Love the vw Golf other than that.
Favorite Features
Everything, especially the auto down auto up all four windows, digital info center, mirror mounted directionals...My first Golf was a 1986, 15 car models later and back to a Golf again, Love- It!!!
Suggested Improvements
1st gear transmission surge/lag problem, sunroof position indicator difficult to read, alloy wheels and fog lights should be standard at this price point, pop the rear hatch switch needed along with an automatic lift gate imho.
