car stalls for no apparent reason.Must wait aleast 2-3 minutes to restart. Very dangerous if you are in traffic.
Fuel pump went out in November of 2016. replaced fuel pump and filter and car ran fine. 2 months later fuel pump went out again replaced it under warranty along with the fuel filter but car still seem to have starting issues. End of February 2017 replaced yet another fuel pump and filter under warranty along with MAF sensor but car still seems to die while idling and will not restart for 15 to 30 minutes
