problem #1

Apr 262018


  • 35,000 miles
When I back out from my garage the vehicle fails to move forward when the shifter is moved from reverse to drive. I have to apply an excessive amount of pressure to the accelerator to get the car to move forward. When the front wheels engage, the excessive force from increasing the power causes the vehicle to launch forward many times almost uncontrollable with the front tires squealing. It appears the front brakes are engaged and suddenly disengages and then suddenly launches forward. There has been no assistance from the dealership to assist with the problem. This issue almost always happens after the vehicle has setting overnight in my garage and backing down a slight slope tonto the public street.. this has been an ongoing problem for the past 3 plus years of ownership.
