So I just bought a 2008 base model with 60k miles on it. Manual transmission of course, in great condition- or so I htought. The car ran great, engine sounds fine, but there is some sort of an electrical problem that prevents it from going too far. It has gotten to the point where the engine dies before I can put it into gear. It has only died on my mom- twice actually, but I've never had it die on me the three times I've taken it for a short drive. I thought it was an alternator problem, but I was wondering if any of you have any better ideas of what it might be. Please let me know as the car will be going back to the dealer tomorrow if I can't find any more suggestions to remedy this. PLEASE HELP!!!! Thank you so much!!!
