2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport - pause at acceleration

While driving mainly at low speeds. I have a pause at acceleration. The pedel goes down a little before the vehicle will accelerates. Cause a whiplash affect.

Problematic pedal/throttle position sensor maybe. Is check engine light on? Has a shop checked for stored diagnostic codes? If not, that’s where to start; i.e. don’t replace parts until a proper diagnostic has been done.
