17 max xt won’t keep turning over to start
So long story made way short the machine has been an absolute lemon since I bought it brand new. Latest issue is the machine won’t turn over to start. Battery is good brand new. Connections are great. We haven’t dug down to the starter yet but it just bumps then clicks. The battery has plenty of charge and jumping it doesn’t change the bump click then nothing.
Oh cherry on top I have rode the machine 3 times in 2 years every trip returns to the truck in limp mode. I bought it for hunting but spend more time working on gremlins. My outlander was such an amazing machine. This thing is an absolute waste.
57.1 miles on it so far and the local shop that I bought it from has been ZERO help since I bought it. First trip was limp mode return and their parking lot analysis was metal from the break in causing the speed sensor to go into limp mode. They wouldn’t even bring it into the shop. Oil changed twice now because the next trip did the same thing. We couldn’t find any metal in the oil but the shop told me on the phone it will clear itself up and I could pay to have it serviced but they won’t warranty anything. The shop wouldn’t warranty anything because I didn’t have enough miles on it to be serviced. They cleared the codes and sent me on my way. I’m so frustrated lately because it’s like I threw $20k in the trash. I want it to run right so bad and defend the machine all the time to friends and family but I may be done making excuses for this POS that won’t even start now.
