Know it's a drive by wire system but when cruising if I "lay into the throttle" to pass I get nothing then sudden acceleration. Should I be in "sport" to pass. I have a 2.0 titanium auto

Can't help you with that. The 1.6 seems to be pretty responsive in all situations.

Yeah it is very responsive when I'm driving "spirited" but when just cruising and trying to not "floor it" around someone and just apply slow steady pressure it's like the pedal itself isn't as responsive to slight input. I was guessing it is a safety or fuel saving feature? In case you aren't using cruise it allows for slight pressure without a change in speed?

Very possible..
