Anyone have any issues with a delayed throttle response? It is most noticeable when accelerating from a rolling stop such as slowing for a car in front of you and then accelerating. The car seems to almost stall then with a 3-5 second delay rockets forward. Very frustrating. If needing to accelerate quickly, I am afraid it is going to cause me to get hit. Dealership reported no others have reported the issue.

I have noticed this. I have a 2020 SE. I notice it in the shift from 2 to 3. It seems that it wants to shift to 3 too soon, causing the RPM to drop really low. This drop in RPM seems like a stall, but it is really just in the wrong power band. It does not seem to be as much of an issue in other gears.

As a work around, if I want a smooth shift, especially when I am in traffic and want response, I use the manual shifters. I put myself in 2. Then shift at the right RPM. Makes a smooth transition to 3. The the rest of the shifts seem fine after that. I cancel the manual mode by pressing in on the paddle.
