Car jerks when coming to a complete stop

Can anyone help me figure out what this could be.

We need a better description of what is happening.
If either front wheel loses traction, while still in the regenerative braking mode, your brain will tell you the car is accelerating. It isn't but that's what it feels like. Because of how a differential works all regen braking immediately stops if one wheel loses traction. One wheel going over a sunken manhole cover will do this every time. The solution is to push harder on the brake pedal to engage the service brakes.

Also if it's been raining the brake rotors will get rusty, so when you transition from regen to the brakes it can be jerky.

That is because you go from regen braking to mechanical disk braking at around 5 mph and some times they grab when not used much.
