problem #2

CTS 6-cyl

  • 76,000 miles
My Cadillac '04 Cts has a brake issue. When turning sharp at low speeds the brakes "disengage" and I lose complete control of the car. It is intermittent and I can't duplicate it at will. It just happens. I have filed a case with GM customer service and am taking to the dealer tomorrow.

Brake failure in Cadillac Cts I have a large amount of information in a pdf that explains our experience as well as documents multiple similar experiences from other individuals. How do I send it to you? the brakes are intermittently completely failing at slow speeds and significant injury to a pedestrian seems inevitable. Please help!!!
