A3 4-cyl

Driving into a small lot to park. Foot on brake and moving at at low speed came to stop and auto suddenly started to speed and sounded like the car was in neutral. Auto jumped a small curb and went into some bushes. In past when driving auto shifted to sport gear without warning and slowed down. Dealer checked and could not find a problem similar recall with 2009 A3 but not my VIN.
