I have had the brakes checked and repaired several times for the same problem. The ABS light keeps coming on and the tracking light says the traction is off and to service. The brakes slip and sometimes fails to stop the car.

I own a lemon of a 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo ss. Nothing but problems since I bought it last year. Steering column problems, cost $200 to fix, catalytic converter replaced, covered by warranty thank god. Today it is in the shop again for leaky gasket and wheel bearing/ hub replacement which is costing another $500. This was bad because the ABS breaks didn't always work which was scary since I wondered when they were going to give out totally and I would be in an accident. The transmission solenoid also needed to be replaced which cost us another $700. Is there any help for us" I wonder what will be next with this car, it is a nice looking car, but it sucks mechanically!! please help! any suggestions"
