Default Strange behavior, please help

The car has a strange behavior (I would call it criminal) but the garage says is normal. I'm in D, foot on the brake pedal. When I want to go and I press the gas pedal, the car starts to move BUT QUITE SLOW, no matter how much I press the gas pedal. It takes up to 2 seconds till the car realize what I want and gives me the power I request.
Are your cars behaving the same?

P.S.: I have an ELM dongle and I have installed the Torque on my phone so I can check the throttle and few other params. The throttle sensor seems to work fine and is responsive, the funny thing about it is that its minimum is at 11% and its max is at 88%.

Are you tuned or running a stock map?

What year is your car? You may have the 1st gear TPS limiter still on the ECU. Also, on the stock ECU mapping the TC-SST is really slow to transfer power and give you what you want.

The car is from 04.2011 and is 100% stock (except tires and stereo). Is that TPS limiter something which can be removed by the garage or that is something I will have it solved once I'll run on custom maps? I'm asking this because the car is under warranty till June next year.

Are you in Normal mode? Manual or auto?

Does it have the same symptoms in Sport mode?

It doesn't matter manual or auto, normal or sport, it refuses to provide the power.

I'd try unplugging your torque app thing. That might be giving you some oddness. If it keeps doing it, take it to the dealer and complain.

I have the car since June, and I have plugged the ELM dongle in yesterday, so the car ran for at least 2 months without it. The car was in the shop about 3 times so far, and they keep telling me that this behavior is normal, it is because of the tranny. The guy tried to explain that the tranny doesn't know which gear to select and needs a second to "think" and anyway it is slow in shifting gears. I just turned around and left the dealership, this kind of brownstuff I don't take, especially when I'm quite experienced when it comes to car mechanics.
