ABS goes off unexpectedly when braking and turning and has gotten worst. Fear for my life as someone can rear end me and my children.

problem #1

XC60 6-cyl

  • 21,100 miles
While driving on a local street the vehicle without warning suddenly shut down, braking the vehicle to a sudden stop and locking the steering wheel in the middle of moving traffic. The vehicle came to a sudden complete stop without driver input narrowly avoiding a collision. Vehicle was unable to start or be moved and had to be placed on a flatbed by the use of a dolly system. If the vehicle had been driving on a highway control would have been lost causing a very serious and most likely fatal accident. Please advise the next step in this procedure as I feel this car is unsafe, in that no warning was provided if a malfunction were to and did occur, why did the car completely shut down, stopping the vehicle immediately and locking the steering wheel. No control was possible due to this situation. As stated previously if the vehicle was driven at highway speeds at the time this would surely have been fatal.
