Push start, after vehicle is sitting and hit the start button it pops and sometimes on occassion bucks. It does not happen all the time. This vehicle has been to the dealer many times and over and over they say cannot duplicate. No one can figure this out. We purchased this brand new. 6 cyl AWD

Thank you for your reply.I realize that. But I was wondering in your professional opinion that if you could shed some light as what it could be that is causing it to do that.

It could be teh way you start it it really has to be seen what is going ion, it may some type of fuel issure or even electrical like an ignition problem but without seeing it nor being around when it h appens it is vey hard to diagnose.

Hi. As far as the way I start it. There is only one way to start it. Put your foot on the brake and hit the start button, use the same gas station all the time. I agree it has to been seen however, every time I take it in to dealer, it doesn't do it every time and they cannot duplicate the sound, does it irratically and no rhythm as to what the weather is or how long it sits it just does it whenever, I've even tried doing a log to see if there is any particular time or day and again, irratically.I've had 3 specialist look at it and they cannot get it to do it. Seems like my A/C blower even though on one speed will fluxuate high and low on its own, maybe electrical. Thought maybe you have heard of such a situation and someone else got it figured out.

No haven't heard of it but you might try doing things like turning off h eater etc. Radio shouldn't matter. To see if it makes a difference ornot. From what you describe it almost sounds like a spark plug is bad or somethign similar to that. But not seeing it it's a guess. If you have remote start and your heater blower doesn't work until you turn thekey on to run there is a tsb to replace a fuse for the havac module which ireally dont' think it would be the trouble you have listed.
