The vechicle's engine shuts off while stopped for a very short time on roads in traffic. It can be a major highway, or interstate and even neighborhood roads. It can be hazardous as the vehicle takes a minute to start back up and get going. I had no idea this feature even existed, before I experienced it after purchasing. I am also experiencing problems with the tailgate/trunk locking. I lock the vehicle, and all doors lock except the trunk. I have only had the vehicle since Dec 31,2018 and am very surprised to be experiencing these issues so soon.
