Curious - when did you get the vehicle (wonder if its a problem with earlier vehicles/resolved with more recent ones) and where are you (mountains or lower elevations, wondering if it's a problem with thin air like what occurred at the 2019 Santa Fe launch in Utah)
Got the car 12/33/18. 2390 ft elevation on a 70 degree afternoon.
If you floor the gas pedal you get the lag....try 3/4 depression and it does help take off
I will try this. I wonder if this is related to Packard8's comment about TC kicking in because I have experience this phenonema on the ram on rare occasion (the car leaps forward but then seems to dog out for 1/2 second then get angry again) -I assumed TC was stepping in with all the power to the wheels.
It could also be traction control in the ECM. I have a Ram/Cummins pickup and the ECM "detunes" the engine on takeoff, causing the "dead pedal" feel. They do it to save the transmission and keeping the 800 ft lbs of torque from tearing the driveline apart.
See above. You might be on to something.
I think Packard8 is on the money with this one. I find my I30 CRDI does the same thing and changed my driving style in this type of situation. I found out like you when I turned across oncoming traffic and thought OMG this is going to end up bad. All was Ok. Try slowly pushing the pedal down instead of mashing it and you will be pleasantly surprised.
So I think Xsolara and packard are on a similar wavelength. I might do some testing when the wife isn't around to see me beat on her baby.
If running regular, try premium fuel. You might just have too much knock sensor interaction. All that anti-LSPI programming is working against you. If already running premium, uncork the intake/exhaust to free up that turbo.
I read some threads about knock sensor/knock issues but thought this was solved with the 19. It's asking a lot to run on regular gas which varies in quality for sure (every time I filled up with Vallero gas I would get a check engine and cylinder misfire code on my ram with 5.7). I suppose I could fill up with super and conduct some full throttle starts. And never use Vallero gas because I don't exaggerate that every time I used it the ECU/ECM would be unhappy.
Thanks for confirming my feeling that this was normal(ish). Love the car. I think it should accelerate faster with 240 HP, but that's what happens when you drive V8's for 30 years -nothing smaller feels right. Nice to hear from people that have owned models with the same 2.0 in the past
