I have a 2006 Jeep Cherokee Laredo, V6, 4WD. I have several questions about my car:
I have been reading a lot about how that year jeep has many transmission issues. When driving I feel like my car jumps when shifting gears. Does this mean my transmission is about to slip?
I have asked several mechanics this and have yet to get a straight answer: when in idle, my car putters and the RPMs rev up. It not only does this when I’m low on gas.
I got 4 new brake pads and front rotors. The front of my car would shake when putting on the brakes so I took it back and they shaved down the rotors. It took care of the problem for about a month. Now, when putting my brakes on, my car is shaking again.
I was rear ended causing me to be pushed into the car in front of me. Since the accident, all the lights on my dash, headlights and radio would shut on and off. I have a video of it I can send, if needed. Also, when this happens and I’m trying to turn, it feels like my antilock brakes kick in and start to rub. I took my car back to the mechanic because it was covered under my insurance, and they told me they checked all the wires and could not find anything wrong. I’m going to take it back again, but would like to have somewhat of an idea.
One more question; I have $3500 left until my car is paid off and 120,000 miles on it. Do you think it’s wise for me to sell my car and get a more reliable car or just get it fixed?
Please help, I feel being a female, I continue to get the run around and no straight answers!
Thanks for your help,
