2006 passat won't accelerate properly for 10-15 seconds after depressing pedal. Runs perfectly once past the initial roll, but very dangerous in intersections etc. Any ideas?

I would suspect that your car is not starting out in first gear. You might want to have a transmission shop take a look at it.

It is starting out in first gear. Depressing the accelerator when stopped, even in neutral, engine does not rev

Maybe your engine needs a tuneup and filter change. Is the check engine light on? Codes?
