Question about 2003 Ford Focus
I have a 2009 Honda CRV. Just a week after I bought it brand new, I have been experiencing one intermitent problem after another. First alot of times when I let off the accelerator the car will slightly ****, almost as if it is downshifting every time I let off the accelerator. Also it almost feels like a thud when I let off the accelerator. Now the accelerator will occasionally accelerate very sluggishly, it seems to sputter under heavy acceleration. Also when I drive the car for the first time of the day it make a really strange whining sound when I first start accelerating, then goes away. Sometimes when braking I will also feel a slight ****, almost as though the car is jerking me then as well. Also the car has no coasting ability whatsoever. I constantly have to keep on the gas. Even going down hill. Also when I first accelerating I will hear a light thunk from underneath the car. I don't know what could be causing all of this. I haven't really mistreated the vehicle, though I'm not real gentl on my cars. The one thing I did right before I noticed all of this problems, was I was just messing around with my new car one day, and I turned the steering wheel back and forth about 15 times while it was stationary in drive gear. Could this have possibly damaged something? Did I make a catastrophic mistake!!! I take it to the dealer and they claim they don't notice anything? Someone please help!!!
Hello there, First I would like to mention that turning your wheel had absoulutly nothing to do with the problems you are experiencing don't beat your self up over it. To me it sure does sound like you have some thing going on. You might want to take it to a reptutable reapir shop that you can trust to get a second opinion, not pointing fingers but sometimes warranty work is not the favorite thing some dealerships like to do.
I think you do need to address this before something may happen because the noises and symptoms you are describing are not normal.
Good luck and I hope this helps. Allen
