You may possibly have an issue with throttle control or the fuel to air ratio. As it's all controlled by the ECU it may be best to have it checked over at a garage. It could also be possible that your MAF sensor is out of spec or an issue with injectors. Try getting so fuels injector cleaner and see if that makes any difference after a few miles of driving.
