On many occasions as I approach a stop red light or stop sign or stop in traffic the car jerks forward as if I pushed down on the gas even though my foot is on the brake. The car could actually hit someone or something if my foot were not on the brake. Once I start moving forward at about 35-40 mph the car starts to almost act like it is about to stall until I either speed up or slow down which is a concern that it may stall out in traffic and cause an accident. I have taken the car to the dealer and they have drove the car and the same thing has happen but they say no codes come up so there is nothing they can do. This is unacceptable considering the cost of this car and what they charge to run the diagnostic check.
