2008 jeep liberty

when i slow down for a stop, and then hit accelerator, there is a 1 second hesitation then it kicks in, like it isnt getting gas or tranny problem, I bought new, dealer says this is “normal”, I know it isn’t. anyone familiar with same problem?

Kind of sounds like a u joint, but cars these days have so many brains. Do you notice the same hesitation and kick with your foot on the brake shifting from forward to reverse?

it is exactly like a u-joint, but it doesn’t do it if i come to a full complete stop, or when i initially put car in drive, only when i slow down to an “almost” full stop, then accelerate, like it is not getting fuel, or tranny is hesitating during that second when i go from decelerating to accelerating at very low speed 2-8 mph.
