2014 Ram 1500 Engine Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Description of the problemThe engine, a 5. 7-liter v8, shuts down intermittently, usually when coming to a stop on city streets. This has happened approximately 25 to 30 times since the vehicle had just a few hundred miles, to today at approximately 35,000 miles. The dealer has not been able to diagnose or correct the problem. Often i am not aware the engine has shut down, as powered items such as the radio continue to operate normally. I become aware of the issue only when i try to accelerate and there is no response and i then notice a flashing light next to the "d" on the gear selector knob. Although this issue has largely been just an annoyance, since it usually occurs at stop signs and traffic lights, there was one instance when it occurred at high speed on a freeway as i was preparing to exit. The engine shut down as i was driving in the far-right lane, causing a sudden loss of speed in front of a big rig, which had no warning because it was not a deliberate action and my brake lights hadn't been activated. I was close enough to the off-ramp to coast off the freeway, but the big rig came dangerously close to rear-ending my vehicle. It is this incident, more than anything else, that prompted me to file this complaint, since it was not only extremely dangerous, but the problem that led to it will likely persist because there does not appear to be any identified repair or corrective action i can take.
