I had a similar problem with my car about a moth ago. The car was sluggish and the steptronic started in emergency mode like something had happened. I took it in and the Mech told me that the battery had a bad cell and that they had replaced it . When the car was cranked with the bad battery it was not getting enough power and the ECM put the car in basically energy saver mode. I do not know if this will help but a battery is a lot cheaper than full blown engine work.
