While at a stop does your car lurch forward? Is this normal?

K,

It should only happen occasionally, not regularly. If the latter, see the dealer. It usually happens to me when I am coasting to a stop and stomp on the brake to stop before I hit the car in front of me. I can't remember the last time I did this as I have learned to coast and brake gently. I am guessing there might be a lag between braking and shutting off the motor. A very non-engineer guess.

Separately, yesterday, I switched to P before I had come to a complete stop. Talk about lurching! Not recommended. Distracted driver at work clearly.

Mine did that yesterday. I was like, "what was that?" Just to let you know, or anyone else, that it has happened to someone else.

Ours does it occasionally. I notice it shortly after coming to a complete stop. Happens maybe once every few weeks. The car did this with the original drive unit (replaced at 47k miles) and the new one (4k miles on it).
