Default Gas pedal "Sticking", then "Bolting"

Just wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem, but I just bought the Sorento (2013)with GDI engine, and have run into a dangerous situation: When resuming after being stopped (at an intersection), I depress the gas pedal, and the nose of the car "dips-down", and nearly Stalls, THEN, with a lurch, it bolts forward, spinning the tires, and throwing my head back like a race driver!

The Service Dept. had it for an entire day, and found nothing wrong, yet it sporatically continues to do this, and I am afraid that it will STALL, when an 18 wheeler is coming at me !......HELP !!???
