What could be causing a car to stall randomly when stopped?

Asked by Jan 03, 2017 at 03:27 PM about the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2016 Chevy Cruze will stall out when I am stopped at a red light or in
traffic.  This doesn't happen every time and happens so infrequently that I
am having a very hard time getting the service department at my
dealership to take me serious about this.  This started back in October
when the car had under 5,000 miles on it.  I've had it in for an oil change
and tire rotation but that is the only service I've had on the car.

Keep on top of the dealer and make a complaint to Chevy as well. Tell them it is a safety hazard and ask for a loaner car so that they can drive it to find the problem. Make them document everything so that there is a record of the problem.

I had this problem dealer ship went through car twice, stalled while I was driving yesterday and caused accident what do I do?
