 Description of the problemI began to have problems with my engine in september of 2018, my car would just turn off while i was driving on the streets. Note that when i took my vehicle in i only had 29,800 miles on it. I took it into a dealership and they replaced my engine in which i did not get my vehicle back until january 2019. Every time i would get my vehicle back the check engine light would be on, and the car would drive terribly. In the course of 4-5 months i had a bad vehicle returned to me 3 times. I¿ve had my vehicle for a week and i still do not feel safe driving it and when i reach the speed limit of 40 mph it begins to shake. Lastly, when i press on the breaks i could feel that my foot begins to tremor/shake as if i¿m in a go-kart i still do not feel safe driving this vehicle on a day-to-day basis. I have attached two photos. One of the check engine light the day the dealership returned my vehicle, and two of the new engine.
