Exclamation Torn in Tucson

I have owned a 2011 Unlimited 4dr for over a year. I have put 32000+ on it having a freaking blast! BUT I have a huge concern. Today I was braking to make a left turn across traffic into a parking lot and my engine stalled. Steering control, brakes, and obviously acceleration died instantly, placing me and my 3 year old daughter in the path of oncoming cross traffic. I luckily coasted across the lanes and onto the curb of the parking lot.

WHAT IS GOING ON?!! I looked it up and NHTSA has an investigation on 2011 3.6L engines for stalling during braking. WHAT THE HECK???? Why is my Jeep trying to kill me?

Could be somehing simple like needing a tune-up. Glad everyone is okay and it wouldn't hurt to get it looked at.

In the mean time . . . .

Welcome to the forum from Tucson too!
