Customer Question

The car is a Mazda 2013 CX -5 Grand Touring AWD with 67K miles. I bought it with 13K and no probs til this week. I stopped, had dinner andupon return to car it immediately started jumping and hesitating and is too dangerous to drive. I parked the car at about 10 car lengths. I have religiously done motor oil changes. What could it be?
