2007 Cadillac Dts stopped in midtraffic. After a few minutes was able to restart, but it would only go 2 - 3 mph. Let it sit for awhile, then it restarted. Drove to dealer, found nothing wrong, however, they reset something in the computer system. They were not forthcoming with information! second time this has happened! I am fearful that this will happen on interstate 495 or another major highway!
