Greetings. Our car was driven in stop-and-go traffic without incident today for roughly forty minutes, then it was in the garage with the engine shut off for a half hour, then it was driven roughly a mile in stop and go traffic when it stalled completely and now will not start (it won't turn over completely). The man who towed the car home mentioned the assumption that the problem is the ignition—within the last two weeks we had the transmission fluid flushed and replaced, and we read that a flush can reveal transmission problems that were not noticed before.
We called the dealership to make an appointment and the first thing the service associate said is we would be looking at a minimum of $125 for diagnostics, and we don't know whether or not the best thing to do is just drop off the car and see what they tell us.
Thanks for reviewing this!
