I had the same problem on my 05 3.2. I did a throttle adaptation in VagCom and it made a big difference. It even improved my mpg's because I wasn't having to press the pedal down as much. Give it a shot and please report back!

I have the same car (year and engine size) and same issue, but, I have no idea what or how to use the VagCom. Can anyone help? I am located in Atlanta Ga.

In VAG go to:

Engine-->Basic Settings-->group 60 then click the ON/OFF/NEXT and you will hear the throttle plate move. You are done when the far right block says ADP OK.

That should do it. Take it out for a spin and see if that makes a difference for you.

So did you do it? Did it make a difference for you?

When I did it I was actually able to increase my MPG's and the car was more peppy.

Mine does this and I've narrowed it down to what the cause is(at least on mine).

When you slow for a stop sign and come ALMOST to a complete stop, the lazy transmission tuning doesn't allow it to hold 2nd gear to take off again. Instead, it becomes confused as you push the throttle harder.......then the trans pauses and downshifts to first gear.

That is why you get the pause, and then the car tries to rocket away. Newer model Audis have netter trans tuning and will hold 2nd gear all the way down until you make a full and complete stop. Yet Audi does not see it as enough of a problem to uodate the shift schedule of our older cars.

The most effective way I've found to deal with it is to bumpt it over to Manual when coming to a stop sign, and take off again, then bump back to auto after you're moving again. This holds second gear since you likely have not make a complete stop.


Hope that helps.......syupid that we can't get small drivability concerns like these addressed.

I think it did! I'm not going to say it's a completely different car, but the throttle definitely seems more responsive. The car also seem to accelerate much smoother.

Also, VAG is the corporate abbreviation for Volkswagen AG.

It's also shortened slang for coveted lady-parts.

Some men will simply never know what it really means, how to use it to it's potential, or sometimes even where to find it.

On the contrary, it's been the best vehicle I've ever had. And I've owned a lot of them.

had it now for 7 years and it has nearly 190,000 miles on it. Going strong and drives fantastic! No smoke, no burning oil, lots of torque, AWD and I drive it like a sports car.
