This car repeatedly dies while driving. As a disabled person, I really can'tafford being stranded. No mechanic has been able to diagnose the problem. When it dies, the power steering won't work, so I can't turn off onto a side road. Very dangerous. This has happened at least 100 times in the last year and a half, and I don't drive every day.

There's nothing worse than riding down the street in heavy traffic and then all of the sudden your car dies. Don't worry the 10 cars behind you wont mind at all you blocking them from passing while traffic is building up behind them. I've learn that switching into neutral will "sometimes" allow me to restart the car while cruising down the street. However there must be a solution to this maddness!!!!!!

Car has stalled on 3 separate occasions in the last two weeks requiring towing each time. It seems to stall when it gets hot, possibly?

I have had this car for 4 days and it has stalled on me 4 times. I am getting incredibly frustrated with it. While I am just driving down the road I feel the car bog down and I see that I have stalled. So I have to sit there in the middle or side of the road and wait for it to decide it wants to start back up.
