Thanks for the post!
Don't know about blender noise but what we have experienced can be considered stumbling or hesitation. Not extreme but noticeable in low gears and at low speed. Also, on turns at lower speeds. Both 2013 SE's behave the same. We have noticed that you can modulate the stumbling effect with throttle input. My car has almost 1500 miles and it may be getting better. Again, we'll see.... By the way, we test drove the cars a reasonable distance and they worked fine. I guess the test drive needs to be longer and more effective in changes of speed, gears, etc.
