Brakes go to the floor when turning right. ABS/tc kicks on but car does not stop. Reported to dealer and they said they couldn't fix it because it doesn't happen all of the time. Almost had many accidents and recently avoided hitting pedestrian. Car is sitting until we find out what is wrong with it.
