That's what I was afraid to hear. It happened again today. Both times have been after leaving work. The car had obviously sat for a long period of time but within the first 5 minutes, under a load, while accelerating, the car will buck a few times before smoothing out. Then, no further problems for the rest of the trip home. It's a very quick issue but still shouldn't happen on a brand new car. Maybe the PCM learning the Maf/fuel tables on the new engine? Doubtful but just trying to come up with ideas.
