2007 VW Rabbit with 20,000 miles manual transmission stalls during take off after being warmed up. Taking off from a green light the car will suddenly and quickly come to a stop and have to be restarted causing traffic behind me to catch up very fast almost causing a collision. This has happened numerous times. I have had the car to the local VW dealer 3 times and the last time they had it for 2 weeks. The dealer has replaced spark plugs, coli packs, mass air flow sensor, catalytic converter, performed a static discharge on complete wiring system, reset throttle body and basic settings and reset readiness codes. The problem is still not solved.
