Most likely it has something to do with the transmission and the transmission shifting hard. Does it happen when you accelerate and shift or is it random.

Touaregs are infamous for haveing problems with the Prop shaft berring. Also you couls reset the driver adaptive gas pedal.With your foot all the way on the gas, Turn the key on without starting the motor. Keep gas pressed for 10 secs. then turn key off. The ECM adapts to your style of driving.
