The model is the new VW Beetle. There are times when I have the accelerator floored, and mostly it accelerates fine, albeit slow; however, a small percentage of the time, I can leave the accelerator on the floor, and the engine has not even registered that it is depressed. The only way to resolve this issue is to pump the accelerator until it kind of "catches". very scary and dangerous.
