I have a Hyundai XG350 2003.

I had three incidents with it:

Two summers ago, I put the car in reverse and backed up few feet and stopped
to look if it was clear to continue. My foot was on the brake, the car was
stopped, then suddenly it lurched back, stopped then lurched back again and
again, finally it stopped.

I reported it to the service people and they said no way that would happen.

Last summer, it did it again, but this time it lurched back only once.

Last September, backing out of the garage, I stopped, pressed hard on
the brakes to let my wife in. She opened the passenger door half way and the
car lurched violently backward, with my foot still pressed hard on the
brakes. That caused the door to pin my wife against the chimney, then slid
and pinned her against an old refrigerator stored in the garage. Luckily the
car stopped but not before it caused injuries to my wife.

I gathered references to other owners who had the same experience. I need to hear of more of the same incidents. If you do have the same experience please respond to me and don't fail to report it to :
U.S. Department of Transportation's Vehicle Safety Hotline Information Center.

seem's like you got a problem with That POS of a electronic throttle drive-by wire

i had the same incident too..i was trying to get into a speeding busy intersection and i finally found a window where i could rush in and floor it, i pressed the gas, the the car moved forward only for about a second and the throttle ceased..while my poot was pressed to the pedal and the car wasn't moving..i almost got hit from the side by an oncoming car ..tire's squealin...almost causing a multiple car accident.

until to this day..i despise drive-by-wire and stupid hyundai for still installing it on their vehicles..

your electronic throttle had a glitch which caused to the motor or servo in the throttle body to open for a second which caused the lurching.

get rid of that XG And get something without DBW.

Your description is not clear to me. Was your foot pressed on the gas or the brake. Did you experience what I described in my post? How many times? What did you do about it?
Please e-mail me if you could with more details. I am collecting other XG owners' own experiences that are similar to what I experienced
