My dealer confirmed that this is an issue that

they have seen before and VW is aware of it. They don't have a solution yet.

I had this happen like 3 times when I first bought the car. I think my cheap salesman threw 87 in there to fill it up after I reamed him on the price (kidding) but it seems to have disappeared by now. It was very unsettling for me the first time it happened to say the least.

I've had this happen to me three times in the first ~1000 miles. Doubtful it's related to octane because the last two times occurred with quality 93 gas. The first two times, the engine quickly regained a stable idle on its own, but the last time, I had to press the gas slightly to bring the RPMs up to normal. This doesn't bother me much considering it doesn't seem to be a huge issue, but if it gets worse, I will bring it to the dealer to fix under warranty.

2011 GTI DSG owner:

Happened the day I brought it home, twice. Unsettling is a good word. Hasn't happened since (disclaimer: I've only had the car 48hours as of right now) but definitely not something I was expecting.

On the 3rd crank I tapped the gas a little and it hung on. It seemed like a low idle. Car had 302miles when I bought it (about 100 were transporting to the dealership) drove it home the odometer read 375 when it happened to me.

VW is aware of the problem and is actively working for a
solution. In my car it was a problem I could nearly cause at will. I suspect it's computer related.

I purchased my 2011 GT1/DSG/Autobahn /keyless_start on April 11.

Symptoms:
Start is very inconsistent and feels very weak.
When I pull out of the driveway, I put in reverse and take my foot off the brakes, and sometimes the car doesn't move unless I give it gas. Other times the engine stops all together after backing out a couple yards. Other times, it is totally fine.

Took it it to dealer on June 13th and they found a fault in their diags and they replaced part called Terminal 15 Relay #J329.

I do not think that fixed it cause it now is showing the same symptoms again. I am planning on taking back to dealer next week.

Odometer as of today is 2700.

I'm in the same boat here... I have the manual with keyless start. I have to hold the starter button in till I get a good crank. If I just tap the button it tries to start but sputters and usually stalls.

Car is 8 days old, 500 miles.

On my wifes car (IS350), you just hit the start button and get a perfect start every time.

Either way I can live with it. The leaking washer fluid on the rear window is driving me nuts though.

I posted a topic about this a few weeks ago. I thought maybe turning the A/C off before I started the car was the cause of the problem?

I have a manual and this happened to me in my parent's driveway which has an incline. Maybe if the car is on an incline, the fuel pump is not properly primed.

Do I have a problem with my DSG? I first experienced the stalling a couple of days after picking up the car.

Mine does this too and no one can figure out why. I give it some gas when it is trying to die and it fixes itself. Happens pretty often, but not often enough for the dealer to see it happen.

Again, I know for CERTAIN that VW has the problem on their radar.

Question for those that are having the problem, does it seem to be only when the car has been driven then has sat for a couple of hours or is the problem random?

Not cold or hot but always after a few minutes to maybe a few hours after sitting it does it.
