Wow.  NEVER had that happen before.  I am so glad that it was in PARK
with my foot still on the brake or it would have jumped forward and
hit the parked car in front of me.  I'm parking further back from
anything now on.

And when I say surge, I mean the entire car suddenly lunged forward so
much that the car was almost instantly thrown backwards violently from
the action of the parking break.

It was from the engine starting, it wasn't as violent as you say.

Check your motor mounts.
