While driving vehicle first shut off at a red light for no reason on Feb 28 2012 same incident on March 1st shut off a red light third time it was while driving 10 mph making a turn in a parking spot. Was able to turn back car on with no problems but it is of great concern now if this should happen at a high speed I am sure car can cause injuries to others as well as myself.

2010 Chevrolet Chevy Camaro V6, sudden loss of power, complete electrical failure, and engine shutdown while driving 30 mph in subdivision. Pulled to side of road. Turned car "off" and back on. Drove to dealer who said they could find no problem and nothing recorded in car's computer. Googled recall of V8 to show dealer, but dealer said this was unrelated.

While driving to the dealership in brookdale, mn. On freeway approx 70mph when car completely goes dead. Quickly I put it in neutral and turned it back on and complained to dealer. Driving in St cloud, mn at intown speeds when the car shuts down again. Then it also shut down twice on me in brainerd, mn at a speed of 50mph while driving normal. Then on 3 May 2010 I was going around a curve with 2 friends when it again shut down at approximately 60 mph. This time while on the curve I went into the ditch and hit a mail box. Thus causing damage to the right front of the car. The car was towed and is presently at the dealership in brainerd, mn. This car is to dangerous to drive; will I have a headon collision while trying to pass another car?

Traveling westbound on interstate 80 from reno to san francisco 55-65 mph, without warning my 2010 Camaro had 100 % loss of all power and operating functions; out of control down the mountain during heavy traffic I was able to stop the vehicle by jamming into the guardrail, trapping myself in car. Nothing onstar...I called my daughter in reno and told her to send help..I was in shock. I had no clue what happened or why..but after the traffic slowed down I exited the vehicle, still no help or response. Car started with limited abilities 25 mph; was advised that it was okay to drive back to reno and "bring it on in" at my convenience. Nothing was done. The car ready before the shuttle got back to the shop. The service men shrugged it off and told me to watch for the warning signs; I can't have any serious problems because they haven't had any electrical problems with these cars across the board??!I had no warning signs..I am lucky that I was not killed and did not kill anybody with my imaginary car problems. 2nd incident all systems went crazy, extreme heat coming from dash, no heat turned on, false readings, all warning lights and gauges went off, power locks don't work, no more auto start I requested service with no response for 5 days. I left a very expressive message for fleet manager and service dept finally responded. Bad service..rude. I paid over 300 for car rental GM picked up 1 day they concluded again nothing wrong with car. Malfunction was caused by snow and cold weather (not acceptable)because it wasn't driven in snow. 3rd time driving with kids on freeway in reno...guess what no power!! was advised once again that I could drive it on in the next business day. Well I learned the GM secret. Let her sit and she'll reset. I will not be able to live with the consequences of a death caused by a $50000 time bomb. Dream car not worth a life or the fear of what might happen everytime you start it.
