car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Chevrolet Impala

The vehicle is a 2010 Chevrolet Impala. Driving to work and I got a display message that said some thing similar to "stabilitrack repair, engine power reduced" and then the car shut down. No power steering, nothing. I was finally able to stop, but I wasn't able to get off the road and it caused a potentially dangerous situation. I've read online this is a common issue with Impala's and something that is a design flaw, as the shutting down of the car is not needed. Had I been in traffic, a large car pile up would have resulted. This issue happened on Mon., May. 19, 2014.

The car restarted after I stopped shaking & was able to make it home to basalt. 2 months later the same thing happened on CO hwy 82 on a straight away between carbondale & glenwood springs. I was able to safely maneuver the car to the side of the road. Both times I checked the internet for recall information finding nothing. The recent media attention alerted me to the current recall & have called my dealership & made an appointment for the ignition switch to be replaced. This problem occurred on 03/19/2013.

The abs and traction control light came on. The vehicle was able to be moved over to the side of the road without incident. Restarted the vehicle and it operated as normal. The second incident occurred while moving the vehicle around 5 miles an hour when the engine shut off again. Power steering and brakes failed to work. The third incident occurred traveling about 30 miles an hour with the same issues as above. The vehicle has been at the dealer twice with no solution at this time. There is a recall after the timeframe of this vehicle manufacture for the ignition module 11v139000.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Chrysler 300

The car involved was a 2006 Chrysler 300. I purchased the used car on July 20,2013 from car center in waldorf, MD. One week of driving the car I had to fill the gas tank up. Once I started to drive it the car began to stumble and shut off on me while I was driving. I immediately called car center and I was given a loaner car 08/01/13 and the car was supposely taken to waldorf Ford and Dodge to have it looked at. I called the waldorf Ford and Dodge to discuss my car. They told me the only thing they did was cut a new key for the car, which I had them fax me the receipt of the work done. My car shut off another 2 times while I was driving, just after fueling. When I personally dropped the car off at waldorf Jeep and Chrysler dealership the technician told me that I'm not the first one to complain about my car shutting of while driving, just after filling up my gas tank. I asked him was there a recall on the car that was not done. He said they're investigating it. I asked him what do I do in the meantime, his smartass answer just don't fill it all the way up. On 04/16/14, my car stalled in the middle of a busy highway while I had the green light to cross it. We were almost side swiped by another vehicle because they're light turned green and I couldn't get the car started in time to get out of the way. I no longer feel that this is "safe" to drive but yet I'm still stuck with these payments! please help I love the car but want something that is safe to drive. This engine shut off without warning problem happened on July 26, 2013.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Ford Escape

The vehicle having this issue was a 2014 Ford Escape. While driving on highway I accidentally depressed the keyless start-stop button. The engine shut off, power steering and brakes were lost and engine would not restart by pushing start-stop button. I was able to slow car - with other cars close behind- shift gear shift to neutral and apply brake pedal so that start-stop button would restart engine. I have had Ford dealership check keyless start-stop system and they indicate that system works as it should. Start - stop button is located in drivers right knee area and is two inches from similar looking climate control button. Power steering and brakes were lost with engine off and car in motion. I contacted Ford motor company and they referred us to the dealership. This is a dangerous design flaw. The failure date was Friday, May 9, 2014.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of GMC Yukon

The vehicle having this issue was a 2007 GMC Yukon denali. VIN of the vehicle was 1GKFK63867_. I was traveling on the freeway at about 70 mph coming from a supervision training class along with a CO-worker and the following sensor lights started appearing on my dashboard: traction control off, stabilitrak off. This has continued to happen on a regular basis. I have taken it to the gm service at least twice and private repair facilities numerous times and the situation continues. It is now 01-28-2014 and the situation continues and is getting worse. Alone with the above issues now the "reduce engine power" light comes on and the engine shuts down. It has become very dangerous to drive this vehicle and no repair facility, gm or otherwise, knows how to fix the problem. I have to drive so this vehicle is what I drive but, it is dangerous and gm needs to fix it or recall for this issue. I need answers quickly I fear this issue is dangerous for all concerned especially when this happens on a freeway!!. This engine shut off without warning problem happened on Friday, February 3, 2012.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of GMC Envoy

The vehicle is a 2003 GMC Envoy xl. The VIN of this Envoy is 1GKET16S43_. I got home one evening and when I turned the ignition key to shut the truck off the engined continued to run. I was concerned; as I could not leave the vehicle running all night; at that point I tried to engage the key again and the vehicle was still running . I became concerned and started to fiddle with the knobs and was suprised when after turning the highlight switch the engine shut off. The next morning I hestitately attemped to start the vehicle and when I was sucessful I headed straight to the GMC dealer. The dealer said that it was a wiring problem and the ignition wiring had to be redone; (the cost was $1600. 00) I started a dialoge with gm and they engaged me with several conversations; which led me to believe that they would pick up the cost; as electricial components were not part of any scheduled maintenance that I as a owner would be responsible for. When I made a request for reimbursement I was told that because of the mileage there was nothing they could (or would do). I could see if it were related to an oil change. Brakes,filters,etc. But as a owner this item is outside of my area of responsibilty. Gm should stand behind their products and make me and others whole. Ps. It was Tue., Jun. 14, 2011 when this engine shut off without warning issue occurred.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Acura TL

On 3/15/14 my 1999 Acura Tl stalled/engine shut of completely without any warning while driving on the highway at 65 mph. 2nd time it happened, I was driving 40 mph on 3/22/14 & 3rd time it happened I was driving 10 mph on 3/27/14. Each time it happened the engine shut off completely but, the radio and warning light in the dash flashed on and off. I was able to coast to a stop without power steering. After 3-4 attemps to restart the car, I was able to drive off without incident. It happens so random and without warning that I am terrified to drive this car. The car has had a recall of the ignition switch performed in 2003 by the Acura dealer. On 3/24/14 I took the car to the dealer and they have trouble diagnosing the problem. They kept the car for 4 days. They replaced the main fuel relay, performed an engine diagnostic check, performed a recall on the ignition interlock and road tested the car. I picked up the car on 3/27/14 and it stalled later that day as I was driving away from my home. I took the car back to the dealer on 3/28/14 and they still have the car. I want the ntsa to investigate this engine stall issue with the 1999 Acura Tl. I called Acura client relations to report the problem on 3/26/14. I asked them to seriously look into this complaint. I believe ntsa should get involved to get Acura to check/rebuild the faulty ignition switch and conduct a fresh recall. This is a dangerous & serious problem that is similar to the recent gm ignition switch recall. Any vehicle that suddenly and silently shut down while driving instantly and without warning needs ntsa's immediate attention before injurys and deaths occur. I have lost all faith in Acura to successfully repair this ignition switch/stalling issue and call upon ntsa to get involved to investigate this complaint to do what it is supposed to do. . Save lives and prevent injuty. This problem occurred on Saturday, March 15, 2014.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Infiniti G35

The car is a 2005 Infiniti G35. In December 2013 I was driving on the highway with the cruise control set at 60 mph when vehicle completely shut down. Vehicle started back up because of the speed I was driving. Later on my trip home I was doing 45 mph and vehicle shut down and loss all control of vehicle. Brought the vehicle to an autozone to scan and see what the problem was. It was the camshaft position sensors. I changed the sensors and had no problems until 3/20/2014 when the vehicle started shutting down again. First thought it was bad fuel. Tried different fuel station and vehicle still would shut down unexpected. When vehicle shuts down you lose control of vehicle. Very dangerous situation for the route that I drive due to a lot of curves in the road. Brought the vehicle to autozone again to scan for the problem and now it's the crankshaft position sensor. Called Infiniti to see if there was a recall because I have seen a lot of comments on this problem. Infiniti said there was no open recall. Bought sensor and will repair myself before a serious incident occurs. This engine shut off without warning problem happened on Tuesday, December 17, 2013.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Infiniti G35

The vehicle involved was a 2005 Infiniti G35. I was driving my car in rush hour traffic, washington, DC. My car, for no apparent reason shut off and a light "service engine soon" came on. There was no warning that the car was going to cut-off. It simply shut off in the middle of traffic. I tried to restart and was unsuccessful the first couple of times. About the 4th try my car started and I continued to my destination. The "ses" light remained on. About 1 to 2 miles into the remainder of the drive, the car shut off again in traffic and a light that read "slip" appeared along with vdc on/off. I have the slightest idea what this means, but it was frightening to be in traffic and have my car shut off without warning and my children on board. We could have definitely been in a really bad situation had this happened on the highway. I've seen multiple reports and complaints about this and believe this should truly be considered as a viable recall. I don't think we should wait for any actual accident or death to occur before this is addressed properly. It was Dec. 11, 2013 when this engine shut off without warning issue occurred.

Now we're in may 2014 and the car shut off again. I was at a light and the car just shut off. I put the car in park and it started again. The is a huge safety issue and kia is taking no action for this and there seems to be alot of complaints about this on your website.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Land Rover Discovery

The vehicle is a 2002 Land Rover Discovery. Of all the personal vehicles I've ever owned, I've never had one that causes me to drive like I was on "pins & needles". I was driving at highway speed when out of the blue the engine head gaskets let go, without warning. The engine shut down and I lost power steering and power brakes. After investigating with dealer inquiries and independent shops this is a common problem with Land Rover v8 aluminum engines. The dealership(s) I spoke with actually agreed with my concerns but said "talking to Land Rover is like talking to a dog, they hear you but won't do a thing about it". I could understand if this vehicle was high mileage or was really abused. Someone needs to address these people before someone gets killed.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Mazda MAZDA5

The vehicle involved was a 2008 Mazda Mazda5. My husband was driving the car on the highway and the car began to stall and slow down suddenly. The car's heat indicator light went on high and then went to cold. He could not drive the car past 45 miles. When my husband exited the ramp off the highway the car shut down completely. The incident could potentially put my husband in a deadly accident having had stalled and stopped on a highway with cars speeding behind him. We were told by a Mazda dealer that we are responsible for replacing the engine which apparently blew. They claim the engine had no oil, but we know the car should have had oil. No check oil light ever came on. In addition, this car stalled while I was driving on the highway 6 months after we purchased the car. That time I was able to pull over to the slow lane and drive it slowly as that time it also did not allow me to drive past 45 miles. The dealer fixed the problem stating that it was the trans control module that was defective. Earlier this month the car began to stall again while I was driving on the highway once more, the mechanic suggested to replace the transmission. I failed to mention that a few months after buying the car the air bag light would come on indicating that it was not working. We expected all the troubles with the car to be electrical, but either way these problems could have caused our lives. This issue happened on Sat., Jun. 23, 2012.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Mercedes Benz ML430

The car is a 1999 Mercedes Benz Ml430. December 11, 2013 I was driving home from work my benz quit on me in the road would not start back (my home is within 2 miles of my work) the day before it had quit as I was making a turn but restarted a couple of days prior I had the car warming and it shut off while warming up but restarted. There was no lights on the instrument dash panel lit or staying lit. After some internet investigating I assume it was the crankshaft position sensor as it had all the signs that others have had I purchased one for the repair shop to install. They have installed it but believe there is a problem with the crankshaft so I am not currently driving it. I am afraid to drive it with it quitting without any type of warning. My benz has less than 65k I don't have the current mileage with me at this time but if it is needed please let me know. The failure date was Dec. 11, 2013.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Mercedes Benz E63

The car was a 2008 Mercedes Benz E63. The electronic keyless-go system intermittently does not recognize that the key is present. The issue was first noticed in 2008 and brought to the dealers attention within months of purchase when the rear tailgate would not close. Repeated trips to the dealer to address this issue did not correct the issue. The latches, the switches, and the batteries in the keys have all been replaced but the problem persists. In March 2013 the keyless-go system started indicating "no key was detected" when the car was in motion. On March 5, 2013 the dash warning system indicated the "no key detected" (although the key was in the car) in freeway stop and go traffic. When the car came to a full stop due to traffic, the car shut down the engine and electrical system, with the transmission in drive, in traffic lanes. The car would not start again until the key was retrieved from my pocket, and put into the keyhole. The car was taken back to the dealer, and they replaced the antena booster (after 4 days of diagnostics). One week after the most recent repair, the car (with the new keyless-go antenna booster) again indicated no key present while driving on freeway speeds. The failure date was 03/05/13.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Mitsubishi Raider

The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Mitsubishi Raider. I had just purchased this vehicle cash on Friday, July 7, 2006. It had 27 miles when purchased. On Friday, July 14, 2006, I was driving on a 2 lane road on military base in san antonio when the vehicle shut off as I was making a right turn. The vehicle would not start. Everything else worked in the vehicle except start. I am currently stationed at the above post for 3 months while in training and purchased this vehicle at a local car dealer. Tried calling the sales consultant who sold us the vehicle at her cell, which she gave my wife where I purchased the vehicle, no reply, called the dealership, they gave me their customer service which gave me the wrong number to call. They gave me a sex call number. I called the dealership again and their receptionist gave me a phone number which turned out to be a security system. After all this, I decided to go back to the dealer, and told them they had sold me a lemon. . . Yes, I was very upset, I had just purchased a new vehicle and all of a sudden it was not working. I told one of the gentlemen at the dealer and he basically stated they could not do anything until Monday because the general manager was not there. How fortunate, but they were quick to make the sale and take my certified check. I mentioned to the gentlemen that the vehicle was on government property and could not be left on post without no registration or tags. He stated he would get someone to remove the vehiche and never did. I had to take the initiative and call the tow company to take the vehicle back to the dealership. I wasted half the day dealing with this issue which could have been corrected if the dealership would have been willing to work with me. I feel they made the sell, received their money and washed their hands of us. On top of this all, it has placed me in a difficult situation in my military training. They will have to deal with my wife because I will be away in training until July 21st. This issue happened on Fri., Jul. 14, 2006.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Subaru Outback

I bought my Subaru Outback 2010 in early Apr. While I am fairly satisfied with the vehicle, I encountered 4 times totally that the engine shut off itself while I was driving. Normally it happens when I was slowing down and sometimes switching lanes. When that happens, I have to restart engine quickly to have full control of the vehicle. Since when engine is off, power break and steering system will not work. I had to use parking break to stop the car from rolling the first two times since I was nervous, and I didn't know the engine was off. 2 weeks ago, I brought my car to local dealer to check. Dealer technician just thought what I said doesn't make sense at all. They didn't think it could happen at all. (they still don't, not sure why they have so much confidence). Anyway, dealer scanned the computer code and nothing found. So, they returned car to me and told me nothing was wrong, it is safe to drive. I don't know how to reproduce the problem. I continued driving for 2 weeks, then it happened two more times. I have called dealer to schedule another appointment, but I doubt they can find anything either this time. They just don't think that could happen. I did some research on internet, and I did find a number of people complaining about the same problem. Now I feel maybe Subaru can believe our problem is real now? thanks. This issue happened on 06/18/2010.

I was driving on 95 in fort lauderdale, FL moving at about 65-70 mph when the engine shut off, power steering was gone and pushing brakes took all I had to try and safely steer and come to a complete stop crossing over 5 lanes of traffic to the break-down lane. Once I was completely stopped I was able to turn the key to the off position and restart the vehicle. Aside from the engine, steering and brakes all other functions were or at least seemed to still be working (dash lights, radio, windows) the vehicle did this 4 more times while I attempted to drive to the nearest exit and call for assistance. I tested all the fuses and they all were in working order and the next set of symptoms occurred a week later.

car   Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of Volkswagen Tiguan

The vehicle is a 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan. The engine is shutting off/stalling without any warning, this has happened a few times. Each time the symptoms are the same, after driving for about an hour the car is parked and left for one or two hours. When it is restarted it runs for about 30 seconds and then shuts off with no warning, the car can be moving at the time or stationary and still in park, either way the engine can be restarted but may shut down for a second time after another 30 seconds. So far it has not required more than one restart, there are no fault codes which may indicate a fuel or electrical issue. I have researched this and it appears to be a common issue with the Tiguan. My concern is that the car may be involved in an accident as you have to wait for the car to come to a complete stop then select park and restart the engine, you can then put it back into drive before you can pull away again,and repeat if it happens a second time. This problem occurred on Fri., Feb. 28, 2014.
