Suburban 8-cyl

  • 44,000 miles
While taking 4 children to school in the morning, the dash traction control light started flashing and the engine died. Power steering and breaks were gone and I was left stranded in the middle of a busy intersection. After several frantic minutes, I was able to restart the engine a drive home.
