why does Passat hesitate to excellerate after stopping

Asked by Oct 28, 2013 at 10:19 AM about the 2013 Volkswagen Passat

Question type: General

I rented a Passat for a trip. was not warned about this car's hesitation when excelllerating
onto a ramp. With cars screeching to a halt behind me the Passatt just dug in and
refused to  move forward.  This kept occuring each time I stopped and needed to
proceed.  This is going to get someone killed or at least a bad whip lash. Is this problem
just a Passat worry or was it just the car I rented.

it's a rental car! don't worry, be happy- The agency will be liable for not maintaining their cars properly

Thanks for the quick response. But I feel "rental" is not the problem. A neighbor said it had something to with the transmission or gas saving : Uh-huh he did, with a straight face.
