Brand new 3.6L V6 misbehaving on cold start
2015 V6, 700 miles on it. Running Shell V-Power 92 octane. I run the same gas from the same station in my GTI with no issues at all.
Yesterday morning I start up the V6 after it sat in the garage overnight. It starts right up. But after about 5 seconds the engine starts to stumble badly, like it's not getting fuel. RPMs go up and down. After a few seconds of this it stabilizes and is fine.
Ran a VCDS scan: No codes whatsoever. Drove it for an 80-mile road trip, no issues. Rescanned, nothing.
Anyone have an thoughts on this? :-/
In spite of everything, I still like Volkswagens.
