I read the posts about the "hesitation of death" (when slowing to make a turn then applying throttle there is a hesitation before acceleration) that should be corrected by a software update. I took my '04 V8 to the dealer and was told that the TSB addressing this was for V6 models only - that the hesitation I'm experiencing in the V8 is "normal". Can someone point me to the exact TSB for this on the V8 or is my dealer correct?

thanks,

From what I've been told, the fix for the Death Lag is for all TOUAREGs except the V10TDI.

V8 hesitation

See thew related post in the bugs/fixes forum. According to previous posts, the simplest, and most unlikely, place to start for the hesitation/death lag is to be sure to drive 1 footed. Others have also pointed to a Tranny flash and ECU flash in combination.
