My car appears to do it whenever I take sharp lefts or sharp rights as well as climbing a hill. It just hesitates for a slight second. All the time!!

Hesitation

I'm going to wait before I bring mine in. I have a feeling this is a problem many are and will experience. I would think something should be done.

Keyless entry

Can you still lock your keys in the car with keyless entry?? I think I tried to leave the key in the car then try locking the door with the finger on the handle and it would not lock.
