 Description of the problemDuring rush hour, i was on the way to pick up my daughter from day care. As i slowed down into the turning/merge lane at an intersection, my car just turned off without prior warning. I came to a stop and attempted a restart, but it would not allow a restart until the 6th try. My hazard lights would not turn on, so i had to wave angry drivers to go around me. It was very stressful because i was afraid of being rear-ended while waiting for it to restart so i could move out of harm's way. I purchased this vehicle, brand new, in april 2016. I didn't have problems with it until it was 2 years old. For the first year, i even commuted to work 3 hours daily. Now, i am afraid to drive it 3 miles. The engine will simply turn off while driving. We researched it online and found it was most likely a camshaft or crankshaft sensor issue. Even after having both sensors replaced, the problem has continued. Mechanics are at a loss because the problem is intermittent. Sometimes, i can drive it a few days in a row without any issue. I simply cannot believe that my particular vin was not part of the recall to replace the sensors and that there seems to be no solution to this dangerous vehicle. I cannot drive my 2-year-old car anywhere for fear of an accident!
