I'm not sure if mine has the fix or not, but mine does have unusual acceleration from a stop. If I apply a bit of pressure to the gas pedal and then keep the pressure constant, it accelerates very conservatively and smooth... but if I apply a slightly increasing amount of pressure it launches off the line very aggressively. I've driven a lot of different cars and never seen one behave this way.

I assumed this was intentional, to provide an economical start or a quick start... but it seems unnatural. I've gotten used to it, but maybe it is a bug after all?
