Chugging at take off

I put a bunch of miles on my 1.4T this weekend on Labor Day vacation. But I have noticed at take off from a dead stop it chugs a little bit, almost like the front end is vibrating. Kinda like if I took the traction control off and just mashed it, the front end kinda goes loose. I only have like 1500 miles on my Eco and it is bothering me that I go to take off and I can feel it in the front end.

Anyone else experience something similar?

So I owe 2012 ECO version and lately I have noticed that my car has been chugging at the stop light. Anybody knows anything about it? It seems like it only does whenever is at the stop light in drive. I just started using 91 and I also put a seafoam in it too like 200 miles ago. Any help is appreciated!
Chugging more like heavy breathing that is unstable but it only does at the stop light when in drive. It is like having problem with breathing and it does that for few seconds and then goes away. Is this normal?
Did exactly what you told me to do and nothing has changed in idling and could not feel any suction. The chugging doesn't happen every time, it does once in a while.
