My "Trac Off" light comes on when traveling at city speeds of 30 mph or less; when I have come to a stop light and accelerate it is as if the gears are shifting hard/jerky. The car will stall out if I am pulling into a parking spot or at a complete stop, but if I turn it off it starts fine and the "trac off" light ususally won't come back on for a day or so. This has been going on for a few months; and I have kept up with regular maintenance like oil changes, transmission fluid replenished when low, and a new battery (all were needed fixes, seeming unrelated to the above issue). I've taken in my Autozone and they didn't read any codes on the diagnostic; since the Trac Off light doesn't stay on permanently. Any ideas what this may be? This car is worth maybe $1000 and I'm sick of putting more $ into this piece of junk. (Also - I checked my Vin# against the Public Recalls for this model, of which it "says" that my vehicle is not affected. On a side note, should I trust that my car has no recall issues?)
have the same problem?
