Hi Jacqui,

I also experienced this today. In fact less than 2 hrs ago. So I came home and googled this problem and arrived at tis forum which was recommended by another local forum in Singapore.

My dad bought the car 2nd hand (6yrs old) about a week ago. I sent it to a BCC car shop in Sin Min Industrial estate (Singapore) immediately and spent $1K changing the side and centre mounts, clutch and battery. (+labour)

When I was driving the engine lost power and died on the spot. It is seriously a very frightening experience especially when my car stalled in an area near a local nightclub with drunkards exiting the place with their sports cars.

I somehow suspected the engine died and tried to restart. The red light in the centre flashed and the stop button light up. On second try, a mechanism prevented me from turning the ignition key again. Called AA and delivered the car to the same workshop. Will know the problem tomorrow. I am seriously dissatisfied with the quality of this car especially when it was serviced 1 week before this happened.

After reading this forum I am amazed that such rampant problems in this car went un-debated without a recall to solve all this issues but to let their owners experience and pay for problems which are inherent to the design of the car.
