Vehicle has been doing this problem since the day I purchased it. I am tired of taking it to the dealer and they not fixing. Service manager told me that there was in fact a problem, but because the computer isn't registering any codes, they can't fix it. He told me he wanted the car to "die." I personally do not want it to die because it is dangerous!! the engine completely cut out on me when I was going 65 mph and has also done so at a stop. The vehicle stumbles and hesitates at accelaration between gears and then will cut out with no prior warning except a slight shaking of the vehicle. The dealership (ourisman Dodge) keeps telling me that they can't fix it until the computer registers...well, that may be too late.
