 Description of the problemThe issue i am having, is my car completely shutting off while driving. This happened for the forth time since leasing the vehicle new in 2015. After the first two occurrences which took place a few months after purchase, i took into the dealership and they weren't able to find the problem. About two weeks ago while sitting at stop light it completely shut off. This morning while driving down the road it completely shut off. Luckily i was able to pull over safely put the car in park and restart the vehicle. It runs fine otherwise. I am always able to start the vehicle right back up. I believe there was a recall on the 2011 - 2014 optima engine for a similar issue. I am taking the car into the dealership this afternoon. I am definitely don't feel safe in the vehicle.
