Getting error when trying to subscribe to function in ngOnInit

I am getting error "Cannot read property 'name' of undefined" I have a simple api that returns a Vehicle, which has these fields

    public int Id {get ;set;}
    public int ModelId { get; set; }

    public KeyValuePairResource Model { get; set; }
    public KeyValuePairResource Make { get; set; }
    public bool IsRegistered { get; set; }

    public Contact ContactInformation { get; set; }

    public DateTime LastUpdate {get; set;}
    public ICollection<KeyValuePairResource> Features  { get; set; }`

Now, In the angular front end, I have a simple get method that calls this api endpoint

getVehicle(id) {
   return this.http.get('/api/vehicles/'+ id);


in my angular component onInit function i am doing

ngOnInit() {

this.makes = this.vehicleService.getMakes();
this.features = this.vehicleService.getFeatures();
// this.vehicle is defined as any 
.subscribe(res=> { this.vehicle = res ;});


and finally the code where the program fails seems to be in the HTML

<div class="form-group"><label for="ContactName">Name</label>
        <input id= "ContactName" required #name="ngModel" type="text" class="form-control" [(ngModel)] = " " name = "name"></div>
    <div class="alert alert-danger" *ngIf="!name.valid && name.touched">Please enter Name</div>

I have seen similar problems on stack, but none of them have actually solved my problem. I know that the function is asynchronous and the webpage tries to load it before the async function returns completely. But i have other parts in the code where i try to access things like in

<div *ngFor="let f of features"class="checkbox">
<label for="feature{{}}" (change) = "onFeatureToggle( , $event)">
    <input type="checkbox" id="feature{{}}">{{}}

and that doesn't seem to crash. I am really confused. I think i have given what is necessary for this problem, but please tell me if i need to provide more code. The worst part is, i actually got it to work by accident, and the code in onInit didn't look any different.
