Problem: Engine shuts off at any speed. Will restart. After numerous visits to dealer between April 99 and Jan 2000 and fuel pump replaced 3 times and problem continued. Problem would occur on interstate at high speed, or in the middle of an intersection during acceleration, or while idling. Loss of control a problem on winding roads or while engaging an intersection. Dealer finally replaced ECM (computer) in Jan/Feb 2000 after a letter to dealership problem corrected. Mfg. Extended warranty to 120,000 mi. Engine shut off and would not restart in March 2002 rear transfer pump replaced. In Nov. 2002, engine has begun to shut off again (at least 5 times) since 11/20. I anticipate a large bill from dealer to correct a recurring problem. Will take to dealer this week (12/2/2002).
