The contact owns a 2009 Chevrolet Suburban. While parked, the contact exited the vehicle and was unable to unlock the driver side door. The contact turned the key to shut the vehicle off but the gear shift selector shifted into drive and began to reverse independently. The contact was able to depress the brake pedal and shut the vehicle off. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for diagnostics or repairs. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 49,000.
