So I know this will sound bad and everyone will flame me. But has anyone else noticed any issues over the past year when switching from REVERSE to DRIVE while the car comes to a (H) Hold position on the center display and the car lurches/jerks/twitches forward even without pressing any pedals?
My use case:
I have a 2 car garage where I park the P3D+ in the center of this garage (no other car in that garage). When I park my car, I back into my garage space. I REVERSE slowly into the center of the garage and then use homelink to close the garage door. While waiting for the garage door to close I have both my feet flat on the ground because the car is in HOLD and the back up camera is still displaying on the screen. When I tap and hold the right hand stalk downward, to switch to DRIVE, I recently felt the car jerk forward once. Since my car is usually 2+ ft away from the garage door when I close it, I like to gently roll it forward to be about 1 ft from the closed garage door (this is my routine).
This issue happened on Wednesday March 18th, 2020 @ almost 1pm PT (2020.8.1 firmware). I opened a service request at my service center thru the app about this right away when it happened. The next morning I get a template response text from my local service center saying they cancelled my appt after doing a remote diag and everything seems fine. Kinda annoyed at that response, but hey with all this Corona Virus stuff I don’t want to meet up anyways. So I opened up an issue with NHTSA about it since it doesn’t seem like Tesla cares (They have bigger stuff to worry about at the moment).
In the past when I had parked two cars in the 2 car garage, I would park them both backed into the garage and the P3D+ on the right hand side as you face the garage door. I would park both cars to the outside more, so I could have more space in the center to walk between them. In that setup I would generally need to reverse and then turn the wheel as I drove forward to exit the garage upon departure. A couple of times while doing this maneuver, I had felt something off as well like a jerk forward but just thought it was my imagination (it was such a minor thing that I thought to myself... nahhh it couldn’t have been).
Mileage on my car when it happened on March 18th was 7,076.
I hope this is just me and maybe I did something dumb myself. Just curious if anyone else has noticed anything like this when switching from Reverse —> Hold —> Drive then you get a jerk/lurch/push/twitch of the car moving forward on its own? I have seen all the news by experts on how robust the system is and everyone who makes this claim is full of it... Don’t need tesla to own up to it, just be aware that it happened.
