I have an audi Q5 2011. Last week I parked my car on a slope of a grocery parking lot. After my shopping, I started my car, put it in reverse and the car moved backwards, I hit the brakes, but it not work, the car started to roll, I hit hard, it did not stop. I changed the gear to park, it wont stop. I changed it to drive and it kept rolling. I looked back and moved my steering to avoid hitting any other car. I managed to hit the curb and the car stopped. The back wheel of the car went out of alignment, there is damage to the car.
The dealer says there is nothing wrong with the car. I had my 2 yr old son in the car. I would like to know what went wrong mechanically. What could I have done wrong here. The dealer says I did not hit the brakes. I had a good 40-50 sec to react, once the car was on roll. How could I not hit the brakes and put my son's life at stake.
Please believe me and try to think what can go wrong meachnically. What can I do to find out whats wrong.
