Improper Engine Restart May Cause Stall or Fire
My car falls outside of this recall...just barely. BUT, my 2018 Pac. PHEV had the exact symptoms at 1000 miles on October 6 - car slowly came to a stop, no power and smelled like it was catching on fire. Towed to the dealer. November 1st, the dealer replaced my Catalytic Converter - it had failed - with no explanation of how it could have happened. I now find this recall and have filed a complaint with the NHTSA hoping to expand the recall. I'm still waiting for the $1260 the dealer owes me for car rental while in the shop 25 days - a rental they said they would reimburse me for.
