 Description of the problemWas driving up my driveway which is fairly steep, the engine slipped out of gear (it's an automatic transmission) and started to roll backwards down the hill, the engine was revving/redlining as if it were in neutral. I quickly applied the brakes, and stepped on the gas. The car was still not in gear and continued to roll back, i applied the brakes again, and then the gas at which point the car shot forward, lucky that i was far enough away from the garage or any objects and remained in gear when i pulled into the garage. This same thing happened to me on flat ground in a parking lot one day. The lurch was less, but the car still shot forward faster than it should have, another instance where i was lucky that there were no pedestrians/cars/objects to run into. This car is dangerous and a liability.
