I hope anyone can help me with this one. English isn’t my first language. I hopefully remember enough about this movie. I watched it several years ago on german television. A family on a roadtrip by car stranded at a deserted diner or gasstation. Somekind of mechanical creatures or drones were there and mutilated/killed people. I don’t think that it was from the United States, might as well been from a European country. I think there was a scene with a big trash container where someone hid. And I kind of vaguely remember that the plot contained a time loop.
could it be “southbound”? it has several segments but the plots look close to what you describe
Could it be “Maximum Overdrive” 1986? Maximum Overdrive Original Movie Trailer Stephen King  - YouTube
