problem #3

Oct 092016


  • 82,500 miles


Cvt - rapid loss of power (85 to 50 almost immediately) while on the freeway. Almost rear ended due to continued loss of speed while trying to get off the freeway to the side of the road. Had to sit on the side of the road for more than 30 minutes for the vehicle to cool down before I could resume my trip. Service engine soon light also came on.

Juke 4-cyl

  • 37,000 miles
I was highway driving today and all of a sudden lost the torque and power of my car. It just coasted along and wouldnt accelerate. I moved into the right lane and it just slowed me down about 10 mph slower than I was driving. This lasted for about 15-20 mins and then it slowly regained power.

Juke 4-cyl

  • 30,000 miles
When attempting to pass another vehicle at highway speeds (55-65 mph), the car continues to accelerate very quickly and at a high rate of speed on its own. Pressed down brake pedal and car slowed down. Took foot off brake pedal and car continued to very quickly accelerate on its own (no foot on accelerator). While depressing the brake pedal, I heard a sound, kind of like a popping of a spring sound, then the car resumed normal functioning. The first time this happened, the cruise control was set, and I thought this to be the problem. However, this occurred again yesterday, and the cruise control was not set.
