When driving around and at a stop light the engine will go into auto stop. When applying pressure to gas pedal the vehicle will hesitate and then lurch forward. Vehicle will also get a high idle between 1500 RPM and 2200 RPM and fluctuate between those rpms. Also when idling below 1,000 rpms the engine will rev up and down as if pressure is being applied to the gas pedal but there is no pressure being applied at all. Been having this issue for quite sometime and I figured it was just some bad fuel but it has been consistent. Also have no lights illuminated on the dash, no check engine lights or anything. I haven't taken to dealer yet because I am waiting on the supplies for the air bag recall so they can work on the vehicle while replacing the air bag.

Vehicle will jerk uncontrollably at times at parking lot speeds. Vehicle will stall at times when taking off from a stop. Vehicle will accelerate at times by itself witout pressing accelerator. Dealer claims it needs a new battery but cannot replicate problems. I disaggree with dealer and think vehicle is dangerous.
