Any warning lights? This may be a symptom of a bad CVT/torque converter. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2014/SB-10067826- 0699.pdf

First check if MAF sensor is plugged in (change air filter recently??). If persists, check for vacuum leaks. But if it stalls repeatedly upon slowing to idle then indeed it's probably the damned CVT's torque converter. Sorry....

I did have the air filter changed just a day or so before this started! Good advice -- will have the MAF sensor checked. thanks!
