I have this problem and have taken my care in several times. I have the jolt like it's going to take off by itself as well as I have had problems with a noise in turning sounds like the car hits something and a roaring sound at highway speed that is loud inside car, it shakes a little but I just repalced all tires and problem is not solved. Everytime I take the care in I ask them to check it out and they state there is nothing wrong. Now I have a clunk in my engine when you start it, and it stalls when I accelerate.
