My car completely shut off and steering wheel locked up while going 70 mph on the freeway. Thankfully not too many cars on the road at the time and was able to force the wheel to the right and park the car on the shoulder. Had to have it towed to a shop where the had to replace the fuel pump. Not cheap and i lost a full tank of gas on top of it! Can't believe there hasn't been a recall on this. I've seen a lot of similar complaints

My fuel pump just failed while sitting at a grocery store. Thank goodness it was there and not on the road. Fuel pump cost me $195 and labor $265. The fuel filter is $15 I think. Good idea to have the filter replaced every 30,000 miles. I didn't and now I'm out almost $500.

driving down the road and the car stalled , restarted one time but died immediately and would not restart,the next day we were told to hit the gas tank a couple of times to loosen any residue on the brushes in the fuel pump , we did this and the car started.
