 Description of the problemI was driving my child to school on a rainy morning in traffic,20-30mph on a straight road. The car stalled and then the engine shut off. (i am lucky i did not get rear ended; otherwise i would be in the hospital getting my child checked out.) rolled over to the side of the road; as close as i could get.. Shifted into park and restarted the car. Started right up. I had a quarter tank of gas and drove three miles after that and still have enough to get to a gas station; so it is not a fuel supply issue. This is not safe!!! This is not acceptable!!!! This is a new car purchased three months ago!!! Called the dealer's service rep and asked if this could be part of the issue i am having with fuel economy. I am averaging 16. 1 mpg. My 2007 mercury millan premier awd averaged around 22. 8mpg: 10 years older and larger engine (3. 0 vs 2. 5). I also let him know that at low speeds the car is fighting as if in the wrong gear and low torque. Also there is not a smooth coast, it is almost as if the car is braking by being in the wrong gear. I have had a toyota, dodge, ford, mercury, honda, and hyundai in the family and never had problems like this. This is not safe!!! This is not acceptable!!!! This is a new car purchased three months ago!!! I also asked him if this has something to do with the head unit which is riddled with problems. How did subaru let a car like this off the line? I now fear using this car. I do not want to be in a fatal accident and i do not want to introduce fatal risks to my family. I am told that if the problem can not be reproduced at the dealer, there is nothing they can do. Translation: can't find the problem, can't fix the problem, i am stuck with a death trap.
