This is a discussion on Jerk when I reverse within the CLA Problems/Issues/Complaints forums, part of the Mercedes-Benz CLA Forum category; Almost had an accident. After I started engine and tried to reverse, the car suddenly jerk to backwards, almost hit the car at the back. ...
That is correct, you should visit your dealer, ??? only in reverse?? check oil level in gearbox. What is your milage at the moment? did you have recently had a service on the car? Maybe incorrect oil.
Let us know.
I normally say a prayer before I reverse. God please don't make me a jerk on the road today. . How quickly do you put the car into reverse from the moment you turn on the car?

As soon as engine runs you should be able to put it in reverse, you wil have your feet on the brake so no movement should happen. if you release the brake the hold function will keep the brake applied. only if you touch the gas it will release the brake. Maybe there is a problem in your brake or hold function.
Problem with checking the transmission fluid level is, you will have to buy the dip stick first!!!!!! Mercedes make lots of money on maintenance!
