Lurching

Wed Oct 03, 2018 2:31 pm

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

Regards,

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).
