After reading all the post I will take it to the dealer again and again until we are heard. This isn't going away I can't afford to let this go.
elrosser: Have you tried a higher octane of gas yet? Did that for mine and the shutter literally disappeared.
As for the roll-back, it's to be expected unless you engage the HSA (hill-start assist). Since it's an 'auto-manual' it does have the tendancy of a manual to roll backwards if you don't have a foot on the brake.
