I have the TH with 2.4 and 9-speed auto. I've got about 4000 miles on it. It doesn't hesitate at all from a stop. However, one thing to note is that the TH always starts in 2nd gear from a stop. So, if you pull out with normal acceleration, it feels like a normal car.

If you really want to accelerate hard from a stop, just mash the gas pedal and it'll downshift into first and it'll take off like a bat out of ****.

The only "hesitation" that I've noticed is when accelerating after a rolling stop (A rolling stop is when you don't come to a complete stop). It seem that when you get back on the gas, it's in 3rd and therefore feels like it's hesitating until it downshifts to 2nd then gets going.
