My sister was the previous owner. The engine shuts down completely. This has occurred while at a stop light, while driving 40 mph down a city street. Fortunately, I have been able to pull over or the miraculously the vehicle re-started quickly. These symptoms are identical to the symptoms of the other GM recalled vehicles.
