Purchased 2011 TSX Wagon w/ Tech package from dealer in 2014. Shortly after purchase, I experienced what I call the car going limp when waiting for a car to pass before turning at an intersection; I had slowed to about 7-10 mph and then accelerated to make the turn. The gas pedal was unresponsive; I pressed it to the floor; nothing. I pressed it several times; nothing. No warning lights on dashboard; radio still on. Then after a few seconds, the gas pedal responded and the car lurched forward now responsive to the gas pedal. This behavior continued sporadically for a few weeks before I sought help. The dealer from whom I purchased the care (Volkswagen) was unable to identify a cause. The local Acura dealer here in the Boston area kept the car overnight and said they did not experience this behavior. However, it continued on since then and still pops up sporadically (at least once when I do my around town driving......today.

It does not happen at highway speeds. Outside temperature does not favor cold or hot for the problem to occur. It happens or at least I notice it happening ......when I am at slower speeds and I either go to turn or I've slowed down to 10 mph or so and go to accelerate.

I've been reading various posts here and don't seem to see this behavior reported...yet.
Any sleuthing hints greatly appreciated; I love the car and would love to squash this bug.

That is hard to diagnose, no check engine light I assume? No codes stored?

I'm guessing the pedal position sensor / APP sensor. Got to look up if other people are having this issue.

Thanks for the reply, Primula. No cel; no lights of any kind. No codes were available when local mechanic checked car out. I'll continue to look around.
Thanks again.
