Sometimes when im stopped in traffic (w/ auto start/stop activated) the car rolls back slightly when i resume driving, i.e. When i remove foot from the break and press the gas. Note this happens on a flat surface, generally not on hills. Any ideas?

Some of us have discussed this topic recently (I think):

http://www.glaowners.com/forum/merc...17169-slipping-transmission-clutch-issue.html

I'm not sure why it would roll back on a flat surface vs on an incline, but if you are on an incline, it's normal. If you'd like to avoid rolling back when stopped on an incline, press your brake in further until you see "HOLD" appear on your dash. This will allow you to release the brake without rolling back as you start to step on the gas pedal. Again, not sure why and/or how this happens on a flat surface, but you may want to ask the dealer. Otherwise, the HOLD feature may help.

Hope that was helpful :)
