accelerating from a stop

Anyone know what might be happening when there is delayed acceleration from a stop (automatic audi a4 2007). The transmission doesn't seem to catch instantly. I used to have that problem on an ancient maverick but this is a relatively new car with low mileage....

If you press on the accelerator and you instantly hear the engine revving, but you are not going anywhere, I would think that would be a transmission problem.

it appears, upon a brief look-up on google, that DSG trannies have a common acceleration lag problem.
sounds like VW had TSB issued for it, and it might be fixed with TCM update via software upgrade. so, you want to go to a dealership and find out about those TSBs.

i'll pm you link to discussion on this. not exactly ur car, but same make.
