Notes: For the 2013 model year, the Crosstour got a facelift and the more-efficient (albeit terribly named) "Earth Dreams" engine. While the newer model now gets better MPG, you're not going to be able to ride for long considering they did nothing to address the terribly uncomfortable seat.

This has been going on since I bought the car in October 2013 and continues to date. When stopped at intersection and moderately accelerate, the car doesn't move. It cause you to panic and accelerate harder and then the car jerks and takes off too fast. It's almost like when you take the foot off the brake and accelerate the gears slip and when it grabs it jerks and accelerates abruptly. This is nerve racking when trying to time cross traffic to cross intersection or merging into traffic. Not a very secure feeling.

Hesitation: When trying to accelerate, after stopping, in many instances there is a very pronounced hesitation before the car starts forward. This is a real problem when attempting to merge into traffic or accelerate from a stop sign or traffic light. There is a safety problem when pressing on the accelerator and it takes several seconds for the car to start moving.
