 Description of the problemThe car engine has stalled 4 times since july when wife was accelerating onto a main street or through an intersection, turning from a stop. On one occasion, she fluttered the pedal and regained engine power. The other times she had to take the car out of gear and restart the engine with the ignition key. Loosing power in an intersection with moderate to heavy traffic has scared her and she refuses to the the car. Two of these incidents were prior to the car being serviced for the coil inspection and ecm reprogram recall on nov. 20, the other two were on dec. 3, 2019. The auto was taken to the wilmington, nc subaru dealership for a thorough inspection on dec. 17, 2019, and they could not find the problem. The car was purchased used from a dealership in april. 2019. I, (the husband) drive the car 95% of the time and have not had the problem of engine stalling. The wife is 5'2" and is in her early 70s. She has been driving for 55 years and our previous car was a 1998 subaru outback of which she had no problems. The wife does drive with both feet, accelerating with the right foot and breaking with the left foot. Attempts to duplicate the problem, both with her driving and with me driving fail to cause a stall.
