This is the real cause of the problem! Now that I have discovered to do this, it starts every time!
This is unlike any other pushbutton vehicle I have owned! It is not enough just to put your foot lightly on the brake pedal. It needs to really be pressed DOWN and held there. This is totally unlike previous pushbutton vehicles I have owned, including two different Infiniti's and a GMC Acadia Denali.
You know, like I said when mine did this, my brake pedal seemed to be harder than normal. So, it's possible that I didn't push hard enough on the pedal, and maybe, eventually I did.
