At a complete stop, release the brake and get to the gas quickly, when I press the gas it will start to accelerate for a split second but will hiccup for a split second then go. If I release the brake then move over slowly to the gas pedal then press the pedal it will not do this at all. It's like the idle fluctuates after releasing the brake pedal so if you press the gas pedal without waiting a second or so for it to adjust pressing the throttle hiccups acceleration. I searched on here and the other forums to similar threads but not the same. I only brake with my right foot and make sure I release the brake completely before pressing the gas. I read about the dead space but it doesn't seem like that. I know it's not a race car and I don't treat it like one but I'm always quick on getting to the gas pedal after a light turns green. I got my car a few weeks ago and really have been enjoying it.

The possibilities are endless, without an engine code scan. Any codes in the ECM?
