    Has anyone had problems with the 2.0 jerking violently when accelerating?

    Nothing like what you have described. Best to have it looked at, suggest maybe checking the spark plugs and coil pack. If not those maybe the vacuum lines.

    I recall reading something similar from one other member. Try using the search function. Have you chipped your car?

    Can you describe the violent jerking and the situations it happens in?

    I had a bit of a shudder earlier today but I was trying to accelerate over some rough road and I thought it was just traction control kicking in but thinking back I don't think I should have lost enough traction for that to happen.

    It spudders and jerks when accelerating mostly in the morning or going UP hill.

    SA333 solves this problem.

    Did anyone get their 2.0 fixed under SA333 after the dealer verified your VIN was part of a problem batch of cars or “secret recall” cars? Took mine in asking about this and the dealer was clueless but did say my VIN was not affected. ???

    Very first issue, had RPM’s well up over 6K/7K at 40-50 MPH with no acceleration. Felt like engine was going out as car dragged/stalled in the middle of the highway.

    Screen says no memory card upon start up every time and instructs me to insert one for maps and GPS to work.

    Dealership says nothing wrong because they couldn’t duplicate this issue! Told me my car had a computer system recall though. Parts on back-order with no ETA.

    Ignition hesitating to start and sputters like it is going to shut of for the first few minutes after starting.

    Car started jerking when accelerating on highway like a bucking horse, now they say bring it back again to see if this is a part of the recall and parts needed that they don’t have?

    Sound alot like the stuff the 1st owner of my car went thru!! He had a transmission logic done a wastegate removal X2!!and the fuel line pump replaced.......I have over 1500 miles on her with zero problems, so there is a light at the end of the 2.0 tunnel...my build date was 11/17, yours was right next to mine when the drunk korean came into work that day.....
