Has anyone had a problem with a shuddering gearbox, air bag light coming on & off, stalling, coughing & spluttering when you take off?
All started with the air bag light, first EVER time i drove the car the light came on. Turn it off & started again, no light. Fine for a few days than back on
Than it was the gearbox, 3 blocks from home going up a hill. Box decided to start shuddering. Enough to make me move in the passengers seat & wake our son in the back seat. Again im left scratching my head. I thought it felt like it was in the back end, turned out 1 tire was down to 25PSI. Google-ing found that the brakes come on to slow the tire to meet the speed of the other. Hubs took it for a drive, didnt do it. Goes again & it did. Drive it hard it will, drive like a granny, it wont.
Yesterday when Hubs was on his way home from work (our thursday), it stalled. Im left with a WTF look on my face. Its auto, auto's dont stall!
Now its coughing & spluttering when you take off from lights
We've had this car for 3 weeks & had as many issues in that time. We're the 2nd owners, untill us it had never been of road, either dirt or sand.
Ideas, suggestions, anything? Its a really good car & we like (never happens that we both like the same car) but if it keeps going, its going to have to go.
3 years ago with had a 03 model, other than minor wear & tear. it was fine.
