Hello all. I had actually posted this particular question a couple of days ago as a reply to a similar, but possibly 'unrelated' thread. I have since deleted it due to non-response. So, I decided to maybe post it in this particular category as it may be more appropriate for it to be here instead.

Sometimes, my '300 Touring' (3.5 liter V6) just surges (lurches) while I'm stopped at a stoplight. Sometimes I really have to make sure that the brake pedal is firmly depressed; otherwise, it'll lurch forward feeling as if it'll fly right through the intersection. :eek:

On Monday, I had my dealer try to determine the cause of this particular problem, since I had to take it into them for a 'factory recall notice' (inaccurate console gauge displays/readings) anyway. They claim that they've never seen nor heard of this problem before, and therefore can't really determine what in fact might be causing this 'lurching' effect.

Has anybody else experienced this particular problem, and if so, what was determined to be the cause of this and how was it rectified? Please advise and thanks for your help.

It could be a million things, but my Honda Prelude did the same thing as you described and they finally determined it was the transmission. It would happen as soon as the car would be warm, after driving it for about 10 or more miles. Have them check into that, because I thought it was the tranny all along, and the Honda service center took about 4 visits to figure it out.

New doesn't mean it works

You should get the dealer to replace the tranny.

"

Just tell them to replace the car if they can't seem to figure out what the problem is, that'll get them jumping.

My Chevy Cruze 2014 lurched or surged forward as I was parking. It jumped the curb and slammed into the SW corner of the doctors office building and also hit a girl seated at a table just a adjacent to the bldg. The girl was not seriously hurt but still went by ambulance to the hospital. My Chevy Cruze was possessed and took over the cars acceleration and there was nothing I could do to control my car. I will never buy another GM product.
