I reported this several times to Chevrolet I was not happy with their research. I am having issues with the brakes in my car. Sometimes while braking the brakes will automatically disengage and you feel like you are being thrown forward. I took this to several checy dealerships while my car was under warranty and they could never find the issue. I am still having the same problem and since my warranty expired they told me, I would have to pay for the diag. I feel that since I did report this while it was under warranty I should not have to pay for more diag. I initially thought it was just an issue with my car, until a neighbor with the same car asked if I experienced the same issues my Chevy cares case numbers : 8-3910246376, 8-3833510222 and  8-2355993034

When I press down on the gas, my vehicle stalls about five seconds before it actually takes off. When I try to stop, it does not stop right away as I press down on the break. I've almost rear another vehicle on several occasions while sitting at a red light. I have to stay at least 15 feet away from the vehicle in front of me. My vehicle has shut down while I was driving. My engine light comes on and goes off periodically. If I turn my wheel to sharply (reverse or forward), it jerks, makes a loud noise, and then it feels like its about to cut off. I feel really unsafe driving, however, I have no choice because I have to work.
