Anyone else notice this.

Sometimes when stooped at a light, it feels like the car is dancing. What I think may be happening is that the engine control can't make up its mind to have the engine on or off, thus the torque of the starting engine causes the car to jiggle. Is this something I should be concerned about. BTW, the car has just over 2000 miles on it.

Thanks

Try pushing a little harder on the brake pedal when you're stopped at the light.
Not enough pressure, and the electric motor tries to do the "transmission creep" found in regular automatics. Press a little harder on the brake and the motor will turn off.
