Hi All-

Had this happen twice. The eTron was parked on a decline on the first time, and on an incline the second. After the shifter is moved to DRIVE from Park (w/parking brake engaged), the car begins a to shudder and cause all sorts of disturbing sounds like it is rapidly switching to and from park in a very highly loaded fashion. Happens for about 10 seconds then stops and all things are fine. Anyone else?

Going to try to reproduce this weekend.

I have had a similar issue, but not for the length of time that you are describing. It is more of a hard shift and lasts only for about 2 seconds.

You should try asking your dealer and/or others around if there's a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) out on this issue. If you find out, keep us posted.

I have also experienced this issue with a shorter time frame. Around 2 seconds like others. I believe I can avoid this by disengaging the parking brake myself instead of putting the vehicle in gear and it automatically disengaging. Small sample size so I'm not 100% on that workaround. Worth a try.

I am in for service tomorrow for a poorly fit speaker grill. I will inquire about the gearbox and see if there is any TSB outstanding.
