Need help with engine sputter/stall on left hand turn

I have a 2012 ss L99 with about 3,500 miles. It just started sputtering and even stalling on left turns at medium speed. It has happened four times - only on left hand turns going at medium speeds. All other times it seems fine. It is severe enough to cause the service stabilitrak light to come on but not the engine light. The gas tank is full and now 3/4. The dealer did not fix it properly the first time (said crank sensor connector was loose). This must have been a result of the severe sputter and not the original problem. Any ideas?

this. under most lemon laws they get three chances to fix the problem within a certain period of time and then you can demand another car of full refund.

it's a bit more complicated, but that's the general idea

Or just for shits and giggles, try taking it to another dealer if you think this one is incompetent...

Tricia, thanks for your interest. I dropped it off at the dealer on Saturday. The Service Manager drove it on Monday and noticed the same thing, but it was rainy/wet so could not drive it much. I did not hear anything back yesterday so I guess they are still looking into it or working on it.

I picked up my Camaro from the dealer last night. They said that they talked to GM tech support and it was a bad crank sensor; which this time they replaced. This was the sensor that they reconnected on the first visit. I am hopeful that the problem is now fixed (I have been without my Camaro for 10 days).

That is great news the dealership was able to fix the concern you were having. I do apologize for the inconvenience of being without yor vehicle, because it can be frustrating. Please let me know if you have any other concerns.
