Complaint - Power Train

CAR HESITATES WHEN PULLING FROM A STOP. HESITATION APPEARS TO BE TRANSMISSION RELATED. TRANSMISSION IS AUDI/ZF TIPTRONIC AUTOMATIC. HESITATION IS UNPREDICTABLE, AND CAN LAST FOR SEVERAL SECONDS. I HAVE HAD A NUMBER OF NEAR MISSES AS I PULLED INTO TRAFFIC AND HAVE HAD TO QUICKLY SHIFT TO REVERSE AND GET OUT OF THE WAY OF ONCOMING VEHICLES. AUDI STATES THAT THEIR TRANSMISSION IS WORKING AS DESIGNED. I BELIEVE THIS BECAUSE MY RESEARCH INDICATES THIS TO BE A KNOW BEHAVIOR OF THE TIPTRONIC TRANSMISSION AS USED IN AUDI AND SOME VOLKSWAGEN VEHICLES. VW/AUDI NEEDS TO FIX THIS PROBLEM BEFORE SOMEONE GETS SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED.
