I apologize up front if this has already been covered but I could not find it. I have a 2006 RRS Sport, stock, 156K miles, NA. Sometimes when I come to a complete stop at a light or in a parking lot or something similar the car will try to move forward. Like i let the brakes slip a little, even though i am holding the brakes steady. Not sure if the tranny is still trying to pull or if the brakes are malfunctioning. Makes no difference how hard i mash the brakes down it still happens and it is not all the time. Kind of random. Not really dangerous but it is annoying.

Sounds like you need to inspect your calipers & guide pins and possibly bleed you brake system. If your caliper pistons are sticking or binding you are begging for a failure. If your guides pins are corroded the caliper can not compensate for pad wear. When was the last time the brakes were serviced?

"Not really dangerous"... errr, uhm... not having full braking power is very dangerous.

I have no idea. I bought the car about 4 months ago and have been chasing other gremlins. I will pull the front tires off and give them a once over. It is kind of hard to explain what is happening. I have never had a difficult time bringing the car to a stop, even suddenly. The car only moves forward inches at a time, or less.

Are you sure you are not pushing on the gas pedal as well? These trucks have a long pedal IMO and it goes fairly low compared to my wife's cherokee or my daughter's X5.
