A6 6-cyl

Luckily I haven't had an accident but my vehicle does have a dangerous problem. If you brake hard and then step on the throttle the car will jerk and not want to start going again. It is very dangerous if you are trying to merge into traffic or get out of the way. I was informed it was a programmed "safety" feature intended to stop accidental acceleration. It seems to be exactly the opposite to me.
