Anyone else have this problem?

I have a new 1.8L 03 Passat GLS with the auto-manual trans. In heavy traffic at 30-40mph in AUTO, I get an occasional, 2 to 4 second dead spot in the gas pedal. Then a WooOSH, when the engine finally kicks in. VW Service says it may be due to the Passats new electronic, rather than mechanical gas pedal linkage. Thoughts/ Advice?

My volvo does that also, but and it's also a turbo, that may be the turbo lag, if your RPMs are down, it takes a second for the engine to spool up the turbo.........otherwise, make sure your injectors are clean (I use Chevron w/ Techron, works well)
