I checked the "yes" box, but I'm not sure what is meant by "stalling issue." My car died in an intersection, mid-turn and then went into limp mode with the well documented "service electronic module" warning message.

Yes, that sounds like a qualifying stalling issue.

I had one minor stall issue with Stop/Start error message while the car was idling in my drive. That's it though and my software has all since been updated. Jan 17 build. Other than infotainment related issues, which also have since been fixed via software updates, that's all I've run into. 1400 miles, leased end of June.

I guess I'm one of the "AFTER."

My Q4 was made April 28, 2017 and has stalled several times as I leave the house in the mornings (garage ambient temperature in the high 70's degrees F or low 80's, outside ambient temperature in the 70's).

It has also stalled after having sat several hours at work, as I leave for lunch, ambient temperature in the 80's or 90's.

In all cases, it stalled as I slowed down, such as for a speed bump...and only when I make the mistake of not letting it "warm up" for a good 45 seconds before driving off. When it stalls, it switches itself to Neutral.

They did a flash update and, so far, it hasn't stalled, but now it struggles to start, after it has sat for several hours. It just turns over longer, sometimes quite a bit longer, before the engine runs.

Thanks for sharing your story, galret.

ATTENTION: If you check the 3rd box, please explain the stalling issue you have experienced.

Mine was built March '17 and I have had no issues at all. I also had the software updates done within two days of buying the car. I would be interested in knowing how many of the people who have had problems with the pre-April cars had those problems before or after receiving the latest RRT (IOW, required) updates.

2/17. All these flashes are vin specific doesn't mean anything regarding build. One may have a different flash than another built in the same month. Luckily, I called Alfa and by far very transparent with understanding the issues. Ever have a problem call alfa. In my case, 4 weeks for a flash update is ridiculous to say the least. Luckily the car hasn't left me stranded

In case anyone is curious about the date, April 18th 2017 was the date all new cars came with the updated engine coding from the factory.
i'm getting my updates today. The car has had some small annoyances that don't really impact it that much. I have, however, had the stalling issue if I don't give the car a minute to warm up a day after refueling. It happened twice within 100 yards of my garage. Hoping the updates fix that and don't cause anything else. The car has been great aside from this stuff which has been minor for me. 1700 incredibly fun miles on it!
