Commander will turn off when pulling away from a stop sign, pulling into the garage, turning a corner. The first event was turning left from a stop light after I had been going 65mph on the highway. 11/26/2012 this vehicle to dealership following several more stalls while driving. Nothing was noted on the dealership evaluation. The most frightening event was on the highway at 60mph and simply died in the middle lane in the dark, at night. I thought I was going to die on that road. The engine panels all went down, lights went off, engine shut off. This vehicle continued to die at unexpected intervals on the road. 10/28/13 the dealership stated tipm was shorted internally, the tipm was replaced. This vehicle has continues to die while driving on the road, pulling away from a stoplight or simply turning a corner or driving into the garage from the driveway.

During acceleration throttle became stuck. Vehicle started increasing in speed without the pedal being depressed. I initially held on the brakes for 3 consecutive compressions without any noticeable decrease in speed or RPM. Shifted car to lower gear along with brakes, still RPM and speed was increasing. Plan B was to shift into neutral and let the engine blow or shut vehicle off while driving on busy highway. In the midst of going through these actions vehicle stopped accelerating. Going to dealer first thing Monday morning, god only knows what would have happened if my wife and kids were in this vehicle when this negligent, unsafe, hazard occurred. This is totally uncalled for in a basically brand new vehicle, me, my son and the innocent pedestrians along the highway were in jeopardy when this safety incident occurred.
