Driving down the road the car will lose all power. While car is still running but no gas peddle. RPMs drop and car will not move. But never dies.

This model has issues with the electronic throttle body. The reason that the accelerator pedal is inoperative is that the programming defaults it to a "dead pedal" whenever the systen detects a fault with the throttle body.
