Acceleration Problem

I have a 2012 model and up until recently everything has been great. On Monday I was getting on the highway and was going about 40mph on the ramp and when I went to accelerate I got nothing. No reaction at all. I thought maybe I was in ECO mode but not the case. I took my foot off the gas completely and after about 5 seconds it kicked back in. I thought it was strange. Then it happened again yesterday but this time on a city street. Anyone have any idea what could be going on? Can a dealer look into the diagnostics and see what was going on at that particular time?

It was my throttle body on mine when that happened.

Re: Acceleration Problem

What was actually wrong with it?
