When driving and trying to accelerate the car does not go at all. It's like it's the gear is stuck. Also when sitting at a red light the car RPM is accelerating by itself.the car has jumped from the 1st gear to 4th gear without little acceleration.car has been taking numerous times to dealership since purchased it in 2-2015 the only thing the dealership will do it relearn on the transmission and it works fine for month and then I'm back again. Also my radio in the car has went out and been replaced once. Since the replacement the radio still goes black at times and the ac won't work when this happens. The dealership has just made sure the radio was update to the latest version and the problem still happens. The door handle have been replaced numerous times due to an electrical issue.
