I have taken my car to the mechanic several times now, and every single time they tell me it’s fixed…perhaps I should’ve learned by now and taken my car to someone else, but they’ve served me well up to this point for my last two cars.
My Jeep Compass is a 2008 4x4, about 2,000 under 100,000 miles on it. Normally, it runs like a champ. I get oil changes like clockwork, and every time it’s suggested to fix something, I do it. Since last October, it’s been a nightmare to drive this thing!
It stalls very frequently at stop signs / stop lights, and I need to leave lots of room between me and other cars so I can steadily inch forward while waiting at the red light, otherwise it will die. It starts up fine, but stopping again and it will die again. It’s to the point now that I would rather take the bus to college than drive the stupid thing, which defeats the purpose of having the car with the intention to drive to school.
- Stalls / dies, especially when the A/C is on - unbearable to drive when it’s raining
- Mechanic says they’ve run diagnostics on the car and nothing shows up…very confused!!
Any help would be incredibly appreciated.
