Well stopped by a local dealer yesterday explained the issue and had a tech ride with me and drive it, he agreed and felt the hesitation when shifting but had no clue as to what was going on....??? I'll be dropping it with them for a few days to get some warranty paint issues fixed and they are going to look into it. I'll post once I pick it up and see let you know if they consider this normal.
Sorry to bring up this old thread but, I just started having this problem again for the 3rd time in the last few months. The dealer said they dont know what is causing it and so they dont know how they would even correct the problem. They did acknowledge there is a studder and that its not normal.. Did anybody here figure out what is causing this? Throttle by wire? driving like a pansey? High altitude driving? All of the above? Damm its very frustrating.
Mine has just started doing it - cruising slowly at a constant 60km/hr (bout 35mph) in 4th is the most noticeable. So peddle is steady, flat road etc, and it feels like it misses every now and then.
It only started doing it after the last fill up, so I am thinking it may be fuel related. Missus just filled up today at a different servo so will see if it makes any difference.
Cheers from Downunder, Dave.

I had/have the same issue at times. More so in the summer.
Yesterday I filled up at Mobile. Happened twice. I got this nasty hesitation-not sure what gear-was either 3rd or fourth.
Originally I thought it was the DBW delay. But that is now min with my SB/SC combo
Pretty intresting to see that so many people have the same problem and when I go to the dealership the service manager clames hes never heard of the problem. I find that hard to belive. I would try the SC/SB combo but SC isnt supporting the 2011's yet.
I am having the same problem when shifting into 4th and 5th. Not all the time and from what I have read it is not a fuel issue but a engine management issue (ECU?). I can not get it to reproduce itself for the dealer. I do have a habit of babying the thing so I will try to be a little more agressive.
