Complaint - Power Train

OCCASIONALLY WHEN BACKING OUT OF THE GARAGE THE CAR LURCHES BACKWARD, AND THEN SLIGHTLY DEPRESSING THE BRAKES CAUSES THE CAR TO IMMEDIATELY STOP. RELEASING THE BRAKES CAUSES THE CAR TO AGAIN LURCH BACKWARDS AND THEN SLIGHTLY PRESSING ON THE BRAKES AGAIN CAUSES THE CAR TO IMMEDIATELY STOP. IT'S A WHIPLASH TYPE MOVEMENT. IT OCCURS SPORADICALLY. MY SOLUTION HAS BEEN TO SHUT THE CAR OFF AND START OVER (BASICALLY, "REBOOTING" THE CAR). I PURCHASED THE CAR AT THE END OF OCTOBER 2009.
