    My 4x4 09 LB DC only had 300 miles on it. Every time I'm at a stop with the brakes pressed. I feel like the car wants to keep moving forward. I've never owned a automatic car before but drove my dad's auto Accord multiply times and I never had to press the brakes so hard to keep the car from rear ending the vehicle in front of me.

    I've done a search and it seems like a lot of people are having the same issue.

    Whats the best way to resolve this problem?

    Also the BRAKES ARE HORRIBLE. I can't believe they are this bad on a brand new truck. There is absolutely no feel to them at all. They are by far the worst brakes I have ever felt. Probably worst then my Honda XR50 drum brakes.

    Can you take this to the dealership and have the bleed it under warranty?

    Take it to the dealership for any little problem while it is under warranty. You paid for it, use it.

    +1- They should look at/adjust the brakes for free. If they still doesn't satisfy you- consider some better lines, fluid, and pads (rotors if you want to go REAL crazy).


    and there are some other folks around who had some luck with having additional differential oil (i think) added to cure that surge...under warranty.

    My truck lurches forward at times when Im stopped at a light as well. I found some website alittle while ago some guy posted about it and i think it might have been a recall. You're not the only one with these problems though. Just take it to the dealer and tell them about it. Im sure they have heard of this problem before.

    Huh...this is interesting to hear. I have this problem with my Mazda but that's because the 4 banger can't handle being stopped with the A/C on in Drive. Hopefully you get it fixed!

    My 09 DC felt the same way when it was brand new and as it got some miles the brakes have gotten much better. It used to feel as though you had to have a heavy foot when stopped to simply hold the vehicle in place and now it is a light pressure. Not sure if it actually got better or I just got more used to it - but in either case I have no issues after some mileage. Now at 7500 miles and it seemed to have gotten better at about the first oil change (5K). Not saying I wouldn't have the dealer check it out - but this was my experience.
