Starter motor sieze on Compass

Hi everyone.

I own a 2007 Compass. Sport, 2.4, 5 speed manual, front wheel drive.

I've been having a very strange problem occurring. While driving my starter motor will start turning over and it won't stop until it completely seizes. This is the third time it's happened since early November. What gives??

Any help? It's going back to the dealership now. Most likely they'll just replace the item under warranty. But it's annoying to have this happen.

Has anyone got ideas or have you had this happen to you?
