I have the same problem. Do you have a DSG transmission? There are complaints on VW clubs about this problem. It seemed like an engine control issue but it is actually a confused transmission in my case. It seems to have trouble engaging and must send a signal to the engine to kill power. Recalibrating the transmission with VAG-COM made the problem go from a 3x daily issue to a weekly one. I have read that the DSG is very sensitive to oil levels. I am going to set mine properly and see if it helps. The calibration/adaptation only takes 10 minutes with VAG-COM

SOURCE: black smoke from exhaust
Try new sparkplugs. The guy who told you to get rid of it sounds like he drank too much energy drink this morning. You probably won't get much resale from that car, so it might be worth your time to fix it. A couple of new car payments might make you wish you had.
