problem #1

325 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,000 miles
: the contact stated that while pulling into a parking space, the vehicle accelarated without effort. There was emergency braking which resulted in the vehicle hitting a concrete support parking structure on the front right side of the vehicle. The vehicle almost continued over the edge of the parking structure which was two stories above the ground. Subsequently, while the vehicle was being driven home the rear ABS brake lights and the brakes lights on the dashboard illuminated. During this period, the vehicle slowed down without applying pressure to the brake. Also, the vehicle surged forward. The contact had the vehicle towed to the dealer and it was examined. According to the dealer, the vehicle would need diagnostic testing at a charge before the brakes chip can be replaced. The dealer determined that there was no abnormal code in the computer.
