 Description of the problemI have an automatic skyactiv 2012 5dr hatchback. I was pulling out on a back road that was 60mph and as soon as i pressed the gas to speed up with traffic it was as if the car lost all power. The traction control light came on and the car slowly accelerated as i had the gas pressed to the floor. It very slowly sped up to 60mph and would not go any faster. I tried pressing the traction control button to turn it off and nothing happened. My wife and i got lunch and afterwards it worked fine. Last time i was at the dealership they told me there was a recall for the stalling issue and that they had fixed it. This was about a month or so before i experienced the stall. Before then i had not had any issues with stalling, just with pulling out onto roads. That leads me to mention that this car does not do well when pulling out onto roads. The car does not respond well. It lags and then when it realizes you have your foot pressed on the gas it throws you back into your seat. It's as if the car is in 3rd gear when you pull out and then throws itself into 1st gear. The car feels very unsafe. I wish i wouldn't have bought mazda's 2012 mazda3 since, afterall, it was their first attempt at their new skyactiv engine.
