#20 of 22 3.2 test drive
Oct 24, 2006 (9:03 am)
Well, I drove a 2007 this weekend, and unfortunately, it did have noticeable hesitation from launch. I loved the DSG transmission once the car was moving, but from a standing position, was annoying even scary. Made me very uncomfortable to pull out in front of someone, and with a care of this power, I shouldn't have that problem.
The hesitation was there whether in totally AUTO mode, or when shifting via the paddle shifters or via the gear shift.
Lots to love, but... (The car was loaded - over $41,000! Yikes!)

How does the '07 2.0T fare in this area (does it hesitate on launch?). Could it be a Haldex issue?

Can't be Haldex cause my non-quattro has some hesitation when gunning it from 0 mph. And with some hesitation comes some benefits...... reduced wheel spin for smoother acceleration.
