While driving car will stall out. I must put it in neutral to restart, which it always does. But, it stalls when I am making a turn, when I am proceeding down a highway off-ramp, when I am slowing in traffic. I spoke with the manufacturer and they said they had not heard of any problems like this. I know of at least two other Buick/GM owners who have had the same problem. I had a new part put in, it worked for a little while, but the same problem is back. I noticed two other incidents reported when I searched the database for complaints and that was just from the first 29 listed - ODI id#'s 986510 and 533550. I believe it is a problem, a serious problem that warrants some type of investigation. Please help. I love the car, but am afraid for this problem.
