anyone else have lurching during acceleration in '14 A6?
I have a '14 A6, and after backing out of my garage each morning and putting into drive, as I accelerate through ~ 10 mph/2000 rpm there is a distinctive lurching that occurs.
I have my car in for the 5K checkup, and the tech called me and said something about an air pump (?) and that is was essentially normal. I can't believe lurching in any car is acceptable, let alone a $50K one.
I'm curious if anyone else has seen this in a '14? I've seen posts for earlier model years but nothing that covers this year. I also searched around for TSB for a '14 A6 but so far couldn't find anything similar.
Did that happen during 1st to 2nd gear? That happens to me too even after they did a software update. But it will go away after the car has warmed up.
See if this fits your description.

I have the same issue as well. It's horrible when going downhill first thing in the morning. I'm also having issues downshifting as the shift from 4 to 3 and then 3 to 2 in stop and go traffic. The car seems to pop into that lower gear instead of changing smoothly. They tell me the car is still adapting. What a bunch of bull. Now the car has 3500 miles and still performing this way. Two trips to dealer and all lip service.

'07 RS4 - Gone, much missed!
