(By the way, it's the same jolt I felt right after I came to a compete stop at the stop sign, which I imagine is the transmission disengaging). After I feel the transmission re-engage, I depress the accelerator and STILL there is a lag of 1-3 seconds before the car actually accelerates.

Is this what others are experiencing too?

And yes, engine auto-off is deactivated and I've experienced this issue in all driving modes.
You can feel that same 'small jolt' when at a complete stop (with brakes fully depressed) and you switch from SPORT mode to COMFORT.
