    You may be riding the brakes and not realise it. That's the problem with left foot brakers. I see it all the time. Brake lights on but they are accelerating. Try driving without brakeing with your left foot. Keep it on the floor away from the brake pedal. See if that makes any difference.

    If you are 100% sure that your foot is not on the pedal in any manner and it's still doing it, then yes, file a complaint with Hyundai.

    This has been as issue with my 2012 3.8 also. I'm sure the ESC plays a factor, but the biggest part, imho, is the transmission taking it's sweet old time trying to decide which gear to shift down into. And while you are waiting for it to decide, and the traffic behind you is growing real big in your mirror, your right foot is pushing harder on the gas, until it slams down into 2rd or 3rd gear, and off to the drag races!

    Just submitted complaint to NHTSA - 2012 Genesis Sedan, 6 cylinder engine, stalls. Usually stalls at low speed, as when coming to a stop and turning at the same time - that is, slowing to turn. One time out of at least 8 times in 2 years of owning this car (leased it new in March 2012) it did stall while driving at 45 mph. This is a serious problem. Almost had terrible accident just a short time ago. Dealership says nothing wrong - nothing they can do - but I will be pursuing this asap and much more forcefully now.

    Had the same issue filed complaint with NHTSA and with Hyundai as well, once thing i noticed was the soon i realize i'm not getting any power from the engine i immediately take my foot off the gas pedal for a sec (rather than keep pressing it) and then press it again this somehow solves the problem. I don't think ESC has anything to do with it , its more of a onboard computer that needs a update.

    It is sad that Hyundai will not do anything with this until someone, or a lot of people die.

    I too have had the same problem and not using my left foot to brake corrected my car from stalling. Good luck

    I've never experiencing anything close to this in my 2012. Are you saying that the engine shuts off when applying throttle? I sometimes get hesitation from a dead stop, but that's only when I've managed to break the tires loose and the ESC intrudes.

    Problem totally fixed now. I am convinced that they understand problem although not disclosing it. I felt certain that this stalling is/was related to inability to fill my gas tank - when trying to pump gas into car the gas station pump handle would constantly shut off.

    My problem is TOTALLY fixed now. Stalling would happen when slowing to stop or, worst case, slowing from 55 to turn left in 4 lane divided highway and car stalled in oncoming lanes - I was able to coast through lanes having given myself a safe amount of distance but it felt very close to a devastating accident.

    The problem was fixed some time ago - can't recall when - it seemed to me that the company DID figure this out behind the scenes - they had my car for a day, the service guy told me about the 3 or 4 things they were doing, but not being a car mechanic type I do not recall anything he said. I just know that now I can fill my gas tank without having to work the pump constantly, and, no stalls since repairs.

    I notice the same problem with my 2010 4.6. kind of scary, making turn with cars coming, hit gas, nothing, then wow, takes off. never know when it will happen. I always leave the ESC on however, never thought of turning it off. Another trick I use when pulling out into traffic is start in 2nd then go to drive. Even with ESC on the wheels tend to spin under hard acceleration. Also gives a smoother take off. I don't care for the gearing, first gear is to low for me. Maybe the newer cars with 8 speeds are better, (or worse)

    When I had my 2012 3.8 I noticed this a lot, it almost feels like its searching for the right gear then bam it accelerates, I swear I was gonna get t boned quite a few times. But I learned to drive around this you gotta give it a good amount of the go pedal, if you baby the gas pedal when you take off it usually does it.
