Eclipse Cross

  • 3,600 miles
Stopped at a red light. Light turned green stepped on the gas, truck accelerated. Then began to feel like something wasn┐T normal, engine began to make quick high and low pitched sounds. Was only going 10mph if that. Tried to step on the brakes and pull over, but the brakes didn┐T respond. Then tried to step on the gas slightly to pull over, but the gas pedal also didn┐T respond. I was able to let the truck roll to a stop in the right turning lane, put it in park, and turn on the hazards. Then followed every possible service light came on. The engine never actually stalled. It was still running but not responsive to the brake or gas pedals. I attempted to ┐reset┐ the car, as per the manual suggested. Turned it off for 5 minutes and then back on. The high and low pitch sounds continued, service lights remained lit, and vehicle was still unresponsive. Roadside assistance was then called and towed the truck to the dealership I leased from. Thankfully I wasn┐T going more than 10mph when my brakes failed and was able to roll to a stop, opposed to being on the highway going 60mph, as I was just 10 minutes before this occurred. The truck is not even 3 months old, with only 3,600 approx. Miles.
