I am experiencing stalling problems when I stop at lights or the vehicle is idling. It looses compression. I had it into the dealership while still under warranty around 35,000 miles..now at 47,000 miles I'm experiencing the same problem. Originally they replaced wiring harness and air intake valve so far problem has yet to be determined as to why it's stalling again.
