  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
When traveling 60 to 65 mph and have to come to stop due to traffic or decelerating lane car "shuts off". I have had to roll off road, put on flashers and shut oof car to resart. I am terrified at this time to chance being in car. I travel on highways to work with tractor trailers behind me. Four occurrences. Acura offering to replace transmission and electronic control module now. This is 2nd transmission. The first one a T 6000 miles.
