    '14 HSE S/C V6 Hesitation on Acceleration

    Anyone else out there with a '14 S/C V6 notice a little hesitation when pressing on the gas pedal before the car starts to move? Since i've never owned a RR before, not sure if this is a hallmark of all RR's? Wonder if it has something to do with the supercharger "spinning up"??? Thanks!

    This has not a hallmark of RR (I have a MY 2013). Is your auto-stop system disengaged when this occurs?

    I have no issue with lag or hesitation on my '14 HSE. In fact, I was worried about it being under powered and it surprised me. Perhaps you are having an issue???

    This is with auto-stop disengaged. I'll have it checked out.

    Power from the supercharger will (should) be immediate (crankshaft vs exhaust gases). What octane gas and what type of gas? If you are using low-octane, which I'm sure you are not, then the ignition might be retarding. On my prior turbo Subaru's, the only brands of gas I did not get hesitation (delay between pressing the accelerator and actual acceleration) was Chevron or the new Shell stuff. I only use Chevron 91 on my '08 S\C. If it is neither of those, I would bring it into the dealer - not normal

    Does it do it in Sport mode as well? If it doesn't, part of the issue may be the adaptive transmission still "learning" your driving style and become somewhat confused when you do something unusual such as punching it, which can sometimes cause weird fraction-of-a-second hesitations when accelerating from a standstill, or when aggressively downshifting to overtake traffic (not a big fan of adaptive transmissions, as you can tell...) If that's what it is - especially if your car is almost new and only has a few hundred miles on the odometer - either the problem will gradually decrease as the transmission logic gets used to your driving style, or you may want to ask the dealer to clear transmission adaptions and start from scratch when you visit them, especially if they are unable to find any specific problems or to duplicate your hesitation claims.

    I've used nothing but high octane gas in the car since delivery. BP 91.

    I'm going with umbertob's assessment. I too think it could be the adaptive transmission "learning".
