 Description of the problemI had driven my car to work without a problem which is about 2 miles from my house. After work i went to the store again with no problem. When i backed out of the parking space my car stalled. I put it in park and restarted it, but once i put it in reverse again it shook, and stalled. I restarted it again and gave it a little more gas, then put it in gear to back up. Now the check engine light is on. It wasn't on before all the stalling. I took the car home and parked it thinking it may be bad gas. A week went by without any problems. The check engine light was off the next morning when i started the car. . I came to a light and stopped, waiting for the signal to change. When the light changed i started to accelerate and the car started jerking a little and stalled. This is a busy intersection and i didn't want to be stuck in oncoming traffi as i was in the left turn lane. I put it in park and restarted it again. Again it stalled. I restarted it giving it more acceleration then putting it in drive.. I pulled into a parking lot and shut it off. After a few minutes i started it and the check engine light is now on. The car stalled 4 more times before i left the parking lot. I drove it home and parked it. I have read several other complaints that sound exactly like mine. I do not feel safe driving this car knowing it can stall at any given moment putting me, my family,and other travelers at risk. So far i have not been on the highway with this issue. I had it checked and the code came back as p0010. This appears to be a similar problem as the 2011 equinox had and it was recalled. I strongly feel gm should address this problem before people are killed.
