I smell a recall coming.

That really bad news. Stalling while sitting or while driving is a big enough issue. But when you're in a turn. Just think of it: On/Off ramps, intersections, sharper highway directional road curvers all are a big safety concern. When you loose engine power both power steering is gone and power brakes unless you have a electric booster. These don't to my knowledge and confirmed by the fact it happen.

I'd be very nervous in every turn expecting to turn on Hercules muscles mode to get through it if at all in time. You should report these to the local safety group in your country. I can guarantee you trees don't move if you hit them. The always win even the small ones. Lamp posts give you a big fight but are not solid as are trees.
