I just bought this car, a 2007 Civic EX, and it's surging just as the car is about to stop while I'm braking. I bought it for my wife, and I'm not sure is she's going to be able to handle it. I'm going to call the dealer.
This happens with my car. It likes to surge forward, and then lets me brake with my car.
