On slight grade when stopped at a traffic light or stop sign, vehicle will roll back when taking foot off brake and will hestitate when you accelerrate. At times from a stand still, vehicle will stumble when trying to get in fast traffic. Second try vehicle will stumble and then quickly accelerrate. Vehicles hestitates at slow speeds, 5 to 25. Speeds at 5 to 40, less than 40, vehicle will feel to buck when going up hills or minor grades. When this happens, there is a smell of rotten eggs.

Car keeps rolling back at idle sitting at light, took car in asst. Service manager told me tgere had been a # of complaints about the same thing, nothing they can do. Gave me a 1-800-222-1020# to call explained this to them was told they had not heard anything about this either and gave me a file# and was told to keep in touch with asst. Service manger. I feel this is a saftey issue if stoped at a light and another car is on my bumper if I roll into them it could cause a real problem. Thank you in advance for looking into this matter.
