I just purchased an AWL, SEL Taos about a week ago and am so dissatisfied. It is a jerky ride and so slow to accelerate. After about 2-3 seconds of pressing the gas pedal, there’s then this crazy power surge that knocks you back. I’m mostly afraid of this lag in acceleration when I try to turn left in traffic or when margining onto highways. It just doesn’t GO. I’ve almost been t-boned twice, and when merging onto a highway, I got beeped at from behind for not being able to pick up the pace of traffic. VW truly messed this one up!
