Complaint - Unknown Or Other

AFTER PUSHING THE POWER BUTTON AND THEN SHIFTING OUT OF PARK TO EITHER DRIVE OR REVERSE, THE VEHICLE LUNGES AND I HAVE TO APPLY THE BRAKE, WHICH MAKES THE VEHICLE JERK. SOMETIMES THE GASOLINE ENGINE STARTS BEFORE I SHIFT INTO GEAR SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T. THIS PROCESS IS REPEATED OVER SEVERAL TIMES FOR A MINUTE OR SO, THEN IT CORRECTS ITSELF. I AM JUST INCHING ALONG LUNGING, BRAKING, JERKING... THIS HAS OCCURRED ABOUT TEN TIMES OVER THE EIGHT WEEKS AND 2540 MILES SINCE PURCHASED AUGUST LL, 2009. TOOK TO DEALER, ON SEPT. 29, 2009; THEY KEPT IT FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS, COULD NOT DUPLICATE AND SAID ALL SYSTEMS CHECKED OUT OK. AT THAT TIME THE PROBLEM HAD OCCURRED ABOUT SIX TIMES. SINCE THAT DATE, THIS CONTINUES TO HAPPEN INTERMITTENTLY. THIS HAS HAPPENED ONLY WHEN IN MY OWN DRIVE OR IN PARKING LOTS. I AM FEARFUL THAT IT COULD HAPPEN ON THE ROAD AND CAUSE AN ACCIDENT AND INJURY TO MYSELF AND/OR OTHERS. THE DEALER AND TOYOTA CASE MANAGER SAY THAT THEY MUST BE ABLE TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM BEFORE ANYTHING CAN BE DONE TO CORRECT IT. SINCE IT HAPPENS ONLY ON OCCASION, IT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO DUPLICATE.
