Hey, i know what you mean, only automatic trans cars do it. It happens when you press the gas and then suddenly remove your foot. It feels like a strong jerk. It is your transmission. Try not to do it. My friend had a saturn SC2, and he had to get a new tranny because of that jerking motion. His mechanic told him basically, either floor it all the way and decellerate little by little, or dont floor it at all. :lol: My of course the quality of VW transmissions wont mess up as easily as a Saturn.
