The vehicle is very dangerous & is at the dealer now. I am severely disabled & ill and bought this vehicle for medical appointments out of town. It has clearly had a problem since it was purchased. I will not pick up the vehicle from the dealership no matter how they try to fix it at is extremely dangerous when loosing power. We were on an interstate when this started happening. Thank you.
