Note: "service traction system soon" "anti-lock", and the "traction" lights lights began to come on, then off. Ocassionally ,there would be a vibration on the brake pedal when the brakes were applied. I had my son-in-law drive it but none of these things occured. Nest time I was driving all these lights came on then off and the brakes made the vibation. I drove it to the garage where I buy my tires and where they do service vehecles and asked them to check out all these problems. He drove it around the blocks but no lights came on nor did the brakes vibrate. He pulled a wheel but could not find anything wrong. A few days later the lights came on again and when I applied the brakes, the brakes would not stop the car and caused me to rear-end the car ahead who was stopped at the red light. My SUV was totalled but thankfully there were no injuries but after my problem, I discovered a forum on line and there are blogs describing the abs, traction system problem in the Buick SUV so why did gm fail to recall these vehicles? I wonder if there have been any major injuries or even deaths as the result of the brakes failing?.
