Oh, for goodness sakes. You've become their test subject to find out how to fix the problem.
Thanks for sharing your information and please keep us posted if the filter change fixes the problem.
Mine has been doing the exact same thing as others where I'd accelerate on the freeway, then when I get to an off ramp and slow down the vehicle dies. It appears to happen after I fill up with gas. I try not to fill it all the way because it appeared to only happen when I filled the tank completely, but it has happened once when the tank was half full. It's frustrating and my wife refuses to drive the vehicle now even though she needs it for certain jobs. I'm hoping I can wait it out until the recall part comes in later this year. Since I can basically predict when it will occur (except the time when the tank was half full) I'm usually prepared to stop on the shoulder to restart the car.
