2020 2.0l Touring. <600 miles. ~1 month old.
Could barely get off the line at a stop light because of jerky acceleration (and, no, it wasn't turbo lag ... lol). Has only happened once in sport mode. No engine light. No error codes. Just before it happened the adaptive cruise control was varying the speed slightly with no other cars around ... not sure it this is related.
Any thoughts? Ever happen to anyone else?

I have heard of this issue. This issue was also present on the Acura RDX with the 2.0LT/10SPAT. There is a supposed break-in procedure that must be conducted.

Here is a link to a solution:

Also, there is a thread about this already:

Thanks for the info.
If it is the rough shifting that zmak20 referenced. It does improve. I remember reading Car and Driver's long term 2.0T EX-L had it for the first 15-20k miles, then it faded away.
My 2020 Touring has no issues at all with the shifts luckily. I actually am in love with the behavior of this transmission and I never thought I'd even be able to drive an automatic daily.

No, this was not slightly rough shifting that happens all the time that will improve with break-in. This was not accelerating off the line and very hard shifting and has happened only once.
