Vehicle was still in 1st gear while going into a 6-lane highway. Vehicle stalled onway to median. Oncoming traffic was racing towards it, and vehicle wouldn't start, impossible to move. Vehicle was pushed out off way. Vehicle once started wouldn't move into gear. A complaint was made with manufacturer. Vehicle was at dealer. They determined a transmission failure. The drive shaft broke at outer cv joint due to metal fatigue.
