At this point I've had the same problem looked at by seven different people, and no one can fix this. There is probably some kind of weird electrical problem hidden in there.

Getting stranded in the middle of the hot, vast desert on my way home from San Diego was not a fun experience. frown

The previous owner also had this problem, but he thought he had put a sort of fix in it. That's why I got it at a very good price.

I don't think I am going to make a change any time soon, since it will stress me out to have to clean up the car, make an ad and talk to people while selling it.

But i definitely think this car isn't going to be fixable for some reason.

Lisa, what things are going on with your subaru that have you worried?

I had bought a 2 year old Grand Prix, which I absolutely loved back in 2009. I adored that car. I also bought an extended warranty which would last until the car got to 80400 miles.

About 1000 miles from the end of the warranty, I decided I really needed to get a new car because in the almost three years I had it, they had to replace the water pump and a couple of other major parts, They were supposed to replace the transmission last year, but I found out this year, they had only "fixed" it and it was going again - exactly a month after the 12 month guarentee on the "fix" expired and 1000 miles from the end of my extended warranty. As much as I loved that car, I could not come off the warranty with it because everything they fixed was a minimum of $2000 dollars to fix and I only had to pay $50 each time for the warranty deductible.

So I bought another used car, a 2011 Altima with 7000 miles on it and another extended warranty. Car repair is just way too expensive.

I don't like car payments, but just one major repair on any car without a warranty would wipe me out!!!

I have a desire to get an older, simpler car, without any computers in it, and learn to fix that. Like a Chevy truck.

One of the places to take Dave Ramsey's classes is at your local Y. And the Y is also a place where you can get financial aid if you want to become a member.
