From a complete stop, when accelerating, there is a lag or hesitation before the car takes off. When it does take off, there is a hard jerk. It makes it very hard to gauge the distance between you and other cars when it lunges very quickly. If you're pulling into traffic, as in my case, it can be very dangerous. Also if it's wet, and this happens, it could cause you to lose control of your vehicle. This needs to be investigated, as it can be a major safety issue.
