Not that I'm aware of, but she's only been driving it about a month. When she bought it, it had some emissions issues, which were fixed at the dealer's expense by a third party. (Evap and O2, if I recall correctly.)

I didn't notice any lights indicating it might be a security issue, but I'll double check this afternoon. I too thought the security system cut spark (or the starter itself) rather than fuel though.
Now that you mention it though, it's probably worth noting the car had a remote starter installed at some point, but I'm unaware of any issues with the system.
