Yes - did it once two days ago after driving it to work (10 mins) and again today same thing. Was able to drive it 3 miles to a firestone store for diagnostic test

Ok the most common issue is the throttle body or the throttle plate is carbonized and causing this issue . The other issue is a faulty throttle position sensor or fuel pump. For this to be diagnosed it will run about 150 dollars and depending on the part that needs to be replaced it can range another 200 to 300 dollars. Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
