Throttle Hesitation - 2015 V-6

After coasting up to a red light that turned green, I started to depress the throttle. My 2015 V-6, (14,000 miles) did not accelerate. It was almost like the engine quit. I lifted off the throttle on then re-applied some pressure and all was well. Later in the day this happened five more times in similar slowing down and accelerating situations. I just came back from the dealer. No codes and no action. I do not brake left footed. I only recall using the brake once during a turn off the highway. So, this sounds like the "death lag" that I have read about in the past but not on a 2015. Are other late models experiencing the Death Lag and what are the potential fixes?

Have the ash level checked in the DPF. It might also be a turbo problem, that's not severe enough yet to trigger a code. Is your turbo "deep voiced" and loud, or has it more moderate, mid-range sound?

Oh, I thought it's a TDI. That's what's shown below your name on the left to your posts.
