Consumer stated that while driving vehicle stalled, then stopped. He was unable to get it restarted. Then, called the dealer/mechanic, who sent someone to pick up consumer's vehicle. Consumer was later called, and was told that they had to replace the fuel sending unit. Consumer insisted that this should not have happened because vehicle was too new. Also, consumer could have been killed because the traffic was still flowing at normal speed when vehicle stopped suddenly. Consumer was in the left lane preparing to make a turn when the failure occurred. Luckily, he was able to come to a complete stop and turn on his hazard lights.
