The car was stalling but only intermittently. I took it in and they found that something was clogging the exhaust. They went ahead and checked it out and found that the catalytic converter had deteriorated. They fixed it $1,200 but the car was STILL stalling. Come to find out that there is apparently a fuel filter or fuel pump problem that the car is being recalled for. However, BOTH of these problems were causing the car stalling problem. I am in the process of taking the car in to have the fuel system problem taken care of.
