I have just bought a B8 3.0 V6 Diesel A4 Avant Quattro Black Edition S-Tronic 2012 with abut 27k miles on it.
Not sure if this is a problem of just me as this is my first auto car and I've always driven manuals before (apart from 2 weeks in a lazy USA hire car)
Sat at roundabouts or junctions, on the brake. See a gap and put my foot down, car thinks for a split second then car trundles forward for half a second, then once you half to a full car length out it kicks in and goes like a rocket.
The thinking delay is what I would expect but the trundling forward is my worry. This has left me looking a little stupid at
roundabout/junctions several times. And made a few close calls closer than they would have been in a manual. My old manual 1.6 diesel Peugeot 508 got out of roundabouts quicker than this 3.0 v6 quattro.
Noticed it also sometimes when slowing down for traffic lights, then the lights change and I put my foot down to accelerate and nothing happens for what seems like an age, then it goes like stink.
In a manual you dump the clutch and it goes. But the s-tronic has this awful lag.
Is this normal for the s-tronic and I'm just expecting too much?
