I have been experiencing a strange issue with my new Ascent. I have only 250 miles on it. When taking off it will act like you are turning the key off. It will do this 4 to 6 times in about 5 seconds. It may only do this once a day. It will do the same periodically while just driving but it is very quick.


It is not often enough for the dealer to see. Go figure

Does it do this only when the engine and transmission are cold, under light (ie <5%) throttle? If so, this sounds a little like the bucking problem - a term I used to describe the condition - I experienced with my Ascent. In my case, at least, it is endemic to all Ascent's according to the dealership I worked with - the typical dealer excuse.
