Failure Date: 04/01/2011

While driving at a steady and even speed my car would suddenly pulled to the left as if the left front wheel had the break apply. Almost instantly my "stability system engaged" display would go on and the car would correct itself. This went on to become a regular event with each time I took the car out. The most it occurred was 30 or so times in a 90 mile trip, but it happened regularly on local 2 mile trips to the store. Sometimes it would be more severe than others . In addition and occasionally, when the breaks were applied, there would be a "loudish" crunch sound and resistance to foot pressure that would give way after the initial break application. There was also a vibration "buzz" through the gas pedal when this all would occur. The first time I took the car to the dealer they could not find anything wrong or duplicate the problem. I took them information I had found on the web about the problem and they checked their service bulletins for a problem. It was fixed by changing a steering sensor at a cost of $430.

Car would not stop at low rates of speed on multiple occasions. Have had to throw it into "park" gear to make it stop. Have changed brake sensors on all four wheels, ebscm system, and problem still occurs. "service brake assist" light came on after multiple episodes occurred. Have had it into Cadillac dealership on numerous occasions and continue with same problem. Aware this has occurred on many cars of same make/model and year via internet search.
