car   Automatic Transmission problem 1
Failure Date: 07/09/2012

-harsh jerking while foot on brake and shifting from any gear to drive, it's an automatic transmission -at the speed of approximately 30 mph, braking for the stop sign, it jerked forward first before speed was reduced fortunately, it was still under warranty. The dealer diagnosed the problem as transmission center support damage. The vehicle was never in an accident and it was purchased new. This incident occurred 14. 5 months after I took ownership of the vehicle and had about 9,330 miles on it. It was a safety hazard when it jerked forward before speed was reduced and for a new vehicle to have "transmission center support damage" - certainly not confident that it won't happen again before 20,000 miles.
