While making a left hand turn into a shopping mall, my car stalled. No steering, brakes, power, etc. The only thing that stopped my forward progress was a curb. Almost got hit from behind! I was able to go thru the start motions and restart my car. I had it towed to the dealership where I bought it. The stall was "not found on the computer check". they did find valve leaking & replaced booster check valve. I just got it back today (4/18/15), let's hope this never happens again. I drive on a highway and it if it happened there - who's knows what the outcome could have been.

I was slowing down and turning right into my driveway when the engine stalled. I was going 8 mph when I noticed I had no power steering and the rpms were at 0. my engine stalled for no reason. I have push button start/ignition, so this is not a case of a heavy keychain moving the ignition into auxiliary or off mode.. this is my wife's car and she drives my son and daughter everywhere. I am very worried this could happen in a dangerous situation or at higher speed! I'm not a mechanic, but I have noticed with the V6/auto 6 speed transmission, this car has very strange shifting programs / "curves". it seems to shift early and sometimes when slowing down, it's like the transmission doesn't downshift quickly enough. That may be the cause for what it's worth. Bottom line, I need to know it's not going to do this again with my family in the car!
