My car keeps turning off when coming to a stop.

Well, so far my car has died about 6 times when coming to a stop. It's embarrasing when my wife tells me that her brand new $15k Scion xb never stalls out but my $40k brand new 300 seems like it stalls out every couple weeks. Not only is it embarrasing but it's unsafe.

Have any of you had this problem? What is the solution? I'm guessing it's computer related. The car also has intermittent idle problems. It idles at around 500 rpms then feels like it's about to cut off then surges back to the normal 750 rpms.

Nothing yet. Last time I was in there was for the tranny leak and noisy sunroof. I completely forgot to tell them about the stalling problem.
I'm trying to get some input before I go to the dealer.

No issues like that over 4 years, but I have had others (none major). Sounds fuel related or electronic, dealer should scan for codes. Has the CEL come on, is your gas cap tight?

Not normal, remember no matter how great the 300 is, it remains a Chrysler and these kinds of things, sadly, are to be expected.

Is the stalling occurring after filling up the gas tank?

There have been several reports of the car stalling due to a faulty gas tank.

This happened to me only once and it was after I overfilled my gas tank. Try not topping off your gas tank and see what happens.

i recall this happening a while ago (car was still new) on off ramps when sharply braking in front of traffic light. i guess it was something related to esp computer which tries to regulate engine power. most ramps are not straight and you have to turn a bit while braking.

dealer did not find anything. i have not had anything since then. either it auto corrected or i no longer pushing it as i did then.

My car does the same exact thing. It's nerve wrecking when your new car nearly dies when you come to a stop light. What's even more frustrating is that it's intermittent which makes it hard to trace the problem. Any other feedback about this problem would be greatly appreciated!

if you top off the tank, you are vapor locking the motor.. there is no over-fill drain on these cars, when you top off the tank, the excess overflows into the evap canister and vapor locks the fuel tank/pump..

leave the gas cap off for about 10 miles after filling, and the car won't stall..

then STOP topping off the tank.. stop it short if you must, but never top it off.
