While driving 35 to 40 mph vehicle stalls and steering wheel locks up. Does not not have any warning when vehicle stalls. This happens intermittently. Contacted dealer, and dealer couldn't find anything wrong because problem has to be duplicated.

On three occasions engine charging system light would come on, and engine would stall while vehicle was in operation. Dealership could not duplicate defect, but have replaced crankshaft position sensor, and retested system. Please provide any additional information/attachments.

First time the car was started it bolted and I thought it was going through the wall, . took it to the dealer and he said it takes 30 sec. To warm up before you put it into gear. Would be thrilled if it took 30 sec. It takes up to and over 2 min. Before RPM's are safe to engage. Terrible odor while driving on the freeway. Dealer says, with all complaints " thats the way the car was designed" this vehicle has a rough idle at some stop signs and has stalled several times. Will restart. All engine starts require at least 1 to 2 min before engine RPM's come down to 850 RPM. Otherwise the vehicle jumps, not jerks. Very dangerous situation.
