Vehicle in motion most on highway and sometimes city streets. Sometimes the car will bog down usually between 40--65 mph when accelerating and also while not. Took to dealership they keyed it (test) and said manifold sensor or sensor about $1500 repair. Got this fixed and car still doing it. This has been going on for at least 5 years that I know of. I don't drive vehicle all the time but when it gets drove it happens. The last time this happened was 2 weeks ago. Its was going on at about 50000 miles

When IżM driving my vehicle on the highway, residential areas, on a freeway it will stall on me and turn off. When IżM turning the 2009 Dodge Avenger turns off as well this is a really bad safety hazard myself or someone else can get seriously hurt. It also turns off while IżM at a stop light.

The car stalls when at a stop. The engine cuts off. No warning lights and the Dodge dealership can not figure out the problem. It has happened numerous times.

I have a 2009 Dodge Avenger purchased in 2012. Yesterday I was in a scary situation and could have seriously hurt a child done the Dodge. Yesterday morning the car was driving fine I parked, took the key out of the ignition, and started to get out of the car. The car started rolling back I jumped in the car hit the brake, brakes did not work had to pull the emergency brake to stop. At the time there was a child riding by on a bike thank god the emergency brake worked. I pulled the emergency brake just in time. Trust me that was really scary too me because out of all the cars I have had this has never happened to me. After I got the car to stop I tried to start the car it would not start. I had to call my brother in-law to look at the car at checking several things and watching several you tube videos we noticed this has been and ongoing problem with the Dodge Avenger. He figured it was something with the shift stick and or electrical problems. He got the car started but it would only go in reverse and when he turned the car off it would not crank back up. He tried to reset the car by unhooking the battery cable but that did not work. After several tries he could not get the car to crank back up. I was stuck at the one location from 9am to 9pm. I had to call a tow truck and get it towed to my house. I really want to know what can be done, because I do not feel that I should have to come out of thousands of dollars for something that has been and ongoing issue and is a safety hazard. Not only could I have seriously injured that child, I could have injured myself. I really enjoyed driving my Dodge Avenger thought it was the best car. Please help!
