So... driving down the freeway at 100km/h (the legal limit, of course) and the car starts slowing. Eh? No response to throttle. Push the clutch, tacho drops to zero. No warning lights, engine not running. Gracefully cross four lanes of traffic (luckily not peak hour) and, in the left lane, happen to drop in the clutch before parking it in the breakdown lane, engine fires. Away we go... that was a couple of years ago.
Never did it again. Dealer checked for loose earth connections, etc.
Until a until a couple of days ago. This time I rolled down an exit lane, through a give way sign and into a private driveway with no engine.
Trust me its a f-airly heavy car to steer with no power! Switched all off and on pressed the start button. All good. Drove it home.
Is this the Microsoft version of an Alfa?
Anybody know what might cause a petrol 3.2 V6 Q4 to do this? Seems to be constant speed running up around 60mph that is the common factor.
Confidence in the car is a little dented... perhaps it's time to get back in a Beemer.
