My car was driving just fine until I went to reverse out of the parking spot I was parked in. I pushed the brake down to release the emergency brake and all of a sudden my brake got harder to push down. It displays on my screen the ┐brake┐ is on but it's not. It almost feels like my brakes went out but it's so hard to push them down. Luckily it happened while I was in a parking lot rather then on a main road or even the highway. I took it to the dealership and was told it was my brake booster. It's no way after two years of having this car that anything this serious with my brakes should┐ve happened at all.

The vehicle stalls while in motion, it has stalled 5 times within 10 minutes and I no longer can safely drive it. All occasions were on a city street while braking. The car shows on the dashboard that it is shifting gears even while remaining at one speed and then the system shuts down. It occasionally shifts hard and/or makes an odd noise in the engine.

The car first started off with the screen turning on and off while driving..we didn't think much of it however a few month ago the car began to turn off in the midst of driving. Before turing off the car would begin to yank as if resisting. We proceeded with purchasing a new battery. That was 4 month ago. We are now here 12/2018 and the car has once again started to yank while driving, turn off when going 10-40 mph and now has the check engine, traction and voltage light flashing. Once it is turned off and turned back on after a few mins. It's as if nothing ever happened. All this happened while driving in city street and turning.

While driving the vehicle at around 30 mph the service airbag system and service parking brake system notifications came on along with the check engine light and traction control disabling. As that happened my touchscreen in the vehicle went in and out and the car became hesitant to accelerate. I pulled over and tried to set the parking brake and then release it afterwards the car really became hard to move. Transmission just reved and the car eventually started accelerating.
