Service Brakes problem is a common vehicle problem that happens to most car brands and models. The following is a sample list of Service Brakes problems reported in most popular vehicles.
The vehicle was a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado. I bought my 2012 texas edition Silverado August 4, 2012 the transmission started responding abnormal immediately after leaving the dealership it had 135 miles on it before I bought it I have 32k miles now and nothing has change all the same issues but they seem to be getting worst. My transmission has a hard time shifting no matter what, up, down, turn, forward all normal driving maneuvers. When it does try and shift the engine clatters which is extremely ridiculous I've had several Silverado's and the last one that clatter this way was a 1978 with probably over 300,000(expected). My transmission does as stated by others the coming to a stop sign and applying the brakes the truck will launch forward unexpectedly and shift extremely hard this is the first new vehicle I've ever bought the last 4 were all Silverado from 78-94 and they didn't do this. This truck also wears the outer edge of my tres no matter how many alignments and balance and rotating I get done. You may say your tire your fault but I've looked at over 40 2012 Silverado's in parking lots and saw the exact same wear pattern the owners are probably not the type to check or care. The biggest concern is the $30,000 I paid for this thing and expected it to run for the next 20 years but I'm at less than 2 years and it feels like the transmission and engine are going to jump out and fly through an intersection leaving me at a green light. If I were to let any chevy "big shot" drive this for 1 week as their daily driver (it's my daily) they would probably stop driving it on day 1 and ask me how I've done it for almost 2 years. My reply would be I don't have the money to get another one and you "big shot" need to get this fixed. Active duty military (no money) over worked under paid. Took my savings bought a truck that I waited 23 years to buy and then the thing is in worst shape than the 1994 extendedcab I had. This service brakes problem happened on Aug. 4, 2012.

The car is a 2014 Acura Mdx. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Acura Mdx is 5FRYD3H88E_. Traveling 65 mph on a freeway with adaptive cruise control (acc) engaged, vehicle suddenly brakes hard on its own for no apparent reason; dropping 10 mph in a heartbeat. The vehicle did not produce a collision warning message on the dash. The cars in front on me were well beyond the longest 4 bar range of the acc so it was not detecting and locked onto a car in front of me. There were no cars on either side, no car crossing in front of me and the road was flat with no obstacles. Fortunately, the car behind me was not tailgating as the sudden deceleration could have caused a rear end collision. Sudden deceleration has happened twice during the six weeks I've owned this vehicle. I've also noticed that the acc is inconsistent, often sluggish, in responding to the speed of traffic when it is detecting a car in front of me; creating additional hazard concerns for the driver. The failure date was May. 12, 2014.

The vehicle involved was a 2004 Acura Tl. I had to slam on my brakes today to avoid hitting a car. The abs kicked in like it should and I heard the clicking of it going on and off. I stopped in time but noticed when I step on my brake now, it goes about half way down before they start to engage. Ii did a search and found the following TSB 07-041. This is a safety issue! Honda is recalled the odyssey vehicles for the same issue. It is a known issue in 2004 through 2006 Acura Tl and no action is being taken. This is the second instance at 64000 miles.

The car is a 2013 Honda Odyssey. Vehicle is just 1 yr old, and has a little over 12000 miles. When I drive at 50mph or high and apply brakes steering shakes seriously. The dealer said the rotors need resurfacing, and it was covered under warranty. 15 days after they did it, the same problem started again, and the dealer says it needs resurfacing again. I feel the quality of the rotors needs be checked as it is fairly new car, with a few miles on it. The failure date was April 24, 2014.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2008 Honda Accord. VIN of the vehicle was 1HGCP26338_. General concerns. However I am concerned about the airbag, engine and brakes problem especially. Honda has not made us aware of any problems with this vehicle. Thankfully we have only had premature replacement of brakes. We are aware of consumer complaints only because we are concerned about our product which we assume to be safe and reliable . You can rely on our qualitymaintenance program, we have been alerted by mail of a pending suit we cannot benefit from class action because we have no incident to report. Honda corporate and dealers owe us consumers true and fair information and timely communications . GMC had to kill people before they were found to be irresponsible. Consider this a complaint about brakes, failure to take responsibility, failure to notify, regarding other possible problems especially airbags. It was Sunday, May 30, 2010 when this service brakes issue occurred.

The vehicle is a 2005 Jeep Liberty. The vehicle had a crash. While driving the vehicle in a busy highway the steering becomes heavy and some fluid splashed on the front windshield and suddenly lost steering and gearing . I forced the vehicle to the shoulder and stepped out of it to check what went wrong. There was no light indicator or overheating. As soon as I stepped out of the car it starts rolling backward, so it lost braking as well. . I was panicking and picturing how many accidents and toll death would have happened on the scene. One moving car had collided with my vehicle while it was rolling backward and two people got injured. The police have been notified and my Jeep got towed as it is not drivable. I have contact Chrysler and they return my call and promise to send their engineer to investigate and find out what went wrong without warring and it could have caused a total disaster on 95 north . It was Sunday, May 18, 2014 when this service brakes issue happened.

The vehicle involved was a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Two days after purchasing my brand new Jeep, I noticed a grease all over the inside of the front passenger side wheel. The other three wheels were normal. Upon closer inspection, I could see that the cv boot had come apart and grease was leaking out of it and onto the wheel, axle, shocks and every other component surrounding the leak. I am specifically concerned that the grease could get on the brake discs, causing for difficulty stopping the vehicle. I took it to the nearest dealer where it was confirmed that the part was defective and I would need a new axle. The part unfortunately is backordered with no estimation as to when it will be available because this problem is a common one and there are new Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge durango owners all over the country who need this very same part for the same issue. There are likely thousands of people driving these vehicles with no idea that their front axles are malfunctioning and it is only a matter of time before it causes an accident that could leave someone seriously injured. This service brakes problem happened on 05/14/2014.

However, the most recent warning light is the oil light and the car over heats in a very short amount of time, and knocks and bings. After reading the several post on this web sight, I too am now part of a long list of customers that have major issues with Land Rover. What a mistake it was. This issue happened on Feb. 4, 2014.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2007 Lexus Ls460l. The vehicle dashboard comes up with several warnings. 1) check vsc system. 2) check pcs system. 3)check abs. 4) brake malfunction. 5) check brake system. It says to pull over and to not drive the vehicle. Lexus diagnosed my vehicle as needing to have the brake actuator replaced at a cost of nearly $3500! the dealer said that they had already replaced several of these on this model vehicle in just the past few months. After looking online, I found that there are a lot of Lexus owners with the exact same problem that occurred in my vehicle, with some owners already having the part replaced twice! this is obviously an ongoing problem. Lexus have since made a newer, improved version of the part. There was also a tsib (technical service information bulletin) issued on December 2, 2009 for "brake actuator knock noise" l-sb-0178-09 Lexus are now covering this part for 48 months or 50,000 miles. I believe strongly that there should be more done as this is a very serious problem that is a known defect. A safety recall is necessary before someone gets seriously injured or killed as a result of this know defect. This is a huge safety concern for me as this is our family vehicle that we drive on trips and it is used as a daily driver for my wife and child. This issue happened on 05/05/14.

The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 1LNHM93R19_. Crash happened when the problem occurred. In December 2013, I took my 2009 Lincoln Mks to the dealer for service because it occasionally accelerates before slowing down when I apply the brakes. On a different occasion I was behind a car that slowed down then came to a complete stop to avoid hitting a deer. I applied the brakes, my car slowed down and made a weird noise as if the car was trying to start up; instead of coming to a complete stop, it kept going while my foot was on the brakes. The technician drove me and my son around the block but could not duplicate the problem. I was informed that if the check engine light is not on, or if there are no codes, and if they cannot duplicate the problem, there was nothing they could do. On January 14, 2014 as I pulled into my carport before coming to a complete stop, the car made the same weird noise, and continued going forward and pushed its way into the side of my house while my foot was on the brake. When the noise stops, the car stops. I took the car back to the dealer on January 20, 2014 and they kept the car to drive to see if they had a similar experience. They told me they could not find any problems with the car. I can understand that they cannot fix a problem if they can't duplicate it, but the problem is sporadic. What disturbs me the most is that when I gave details of the problems to their service department, the first time on the write-up they only reported that I hear a noise upon acceleration. The second time they didn't give me any paperwork. If they are only telling their repair department to check for noise upon acceleration, then they would not be checking the car for the actual problems. I have been fortunate both times that no one was injured. This problem occurred on Monday, Dec. 16, 2013.

The car involved was a 2010 Mazda Mazda6. VIN of the vehicle was 1YVHZ8CH6A_. The brake rotors on this vehicle need machining each year due to grabbing.

The car involved is a 2002 Mercedes Benz Ml320. While driving on the highway at 60mph the vehicle started shaking violently. The brakes started engaging on their own pulling the car to the left and right and nearly bringing the car to a sudden stop. It took a lot of effort to keep the vehicle from pulling into the other lanes and causing an accident. The bas/esp light came on the dash and has stayed on now. This all lasted for about 10 seconds. I was in the 3rd lane of a 4 lane highway during moderate traffic. I was almost rear ended by two different vehicles. I have been researching this issue and found many other drivers with the same thing. This is a dangerous defect and needs to be addressed. It doesn't take much for a sudden change in direction and speed to cause a severe accident when driving on the highway, and knowing that this vehicle is capable and know for doing this makes it very dangerous. It makes me wonder how many fatal accidents have occurred due to this problem, but no one knew because it was just assumed the to be driver error. The failure date was Monday, May 12, 2014.

The car involved was a 1999 Mercedes Benz E320. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Mercedes Benz E320 is WDBJF65H3X_. My car skidded of the road after I tried to brake in order to slow down because two right wheels of the car were in a puddle. I completely lost control of the car, and did not understand what was happening. I was on a ramp approaching highway 101, and I was not speeding. It was a really scary moment. I took the car to the mercedes dealership, and their conclusion was that there is nothing wrong with the car, which is hard to believe. It was March 26, 2014 when this service brakes issue occurred.

The car was a 2000 Mercury Sable. This Sable had the stuck throttle problem recall performed in October 2013. Yesterday, a dangerous acceleration condition occurred. While accelerating from a stop light, the car kept accelerating even after taking all pressure from the accelerator pedal. I entered an on ramp and accelerated to join with traffic. Even after completely removing my foot from the pedal the car kept accelerating to over 75 miles an hour. I attempted to brake, but had to shut off the ignition to pull to the side of the road. I restarted the engine and it immediately went to 5500 rpm and started cutting out (misfiring- I assume was caused by a rev limiter). I shut the engine off again. After two more tries starting, and revving to 5500 rpm, it finally started and idled at 800 rpm. While climbing a hill the accelerator stuck again, but at 3000 rpm. I again had to shut off the engine in order to stop. When I restarted, it revved to 3000 rpm. I shut it off again and opened the hood. I manually pulled on the throttle cable to insure it was not applying pressure. I then started the engine and it idled at 800 rpm. The recall was performed in October 2013i have the Sable at a dealer at present to repair the throttle problem. At no time was cruise control engaged. Had my wife been driving, I'm not sure she would not have had an accident. Turning off the ignition was the only way to prevent engine damage and slow the car to avoid a high speed accident. I just received a call from the dealer. The recall (at a different dealer) was performed incorrectly. The clip was installed incorrectly according to the dealer who now installed and completed the recall correctly!. This service brakes problem happened on Thursday, May 15, 2014.

The car involved is a 2014 Subaru Outback. The electronic parking brake engages while the vehicle is underway. When the fault is cleared and driving resumes the electronic parking brake again engages. The mfg ( Subaru) provides a small tool & instructions how to crawl under the car, use the tool to mechanically release the electric parking brake. If a tool is provided along with instructions in the owner manual how to release a faulty electronic parking brake ( which may engage while the vehicle is under way ) this is a clear warning of a possible unsafe operating condition. The car had to be towed to the dealership for repair. The dealership tells us ( this parking brake problem has never happened) the tow truck operator tells us towing vehicles to dealerships because of faulty electronic parking brakes is a major part of his business. This service brakes problem happened on May 23, 2014.

The car involved was a 2012 Subaru Outback. On may 2, 2014, attempted to move the subject vehicle from the garage and the car would not move forward or reverse, as the brakes where totally locked. The car was moved to lee Subaru, fort walton beach, FL by car transport, where I was told the parking brake module was defective due to damage and was not covered by warranty. In may 2012, I was forced to drive over a tire tread in order to avoid an accident at 70 mph. The tread bounced off the under carriage of the car. The brakes worked for 24 months after this incident without problem until may 2, 2014. There had been heavy rain in the area at this time (April 29-30, 2014) and possibly water had entered the module causing the problem. I consider this a problem due to Subaru locating a delicate electronic component controlling brake function in a location subject to all normal road hazards, rocks, ice, snow, rain, debris, etc. , especially so despite marketing images of a "rugged outdoors off road auto" cross country in australia, driving over riverbed rocks and gravel, snow, ice, etc. This component should be located within the auto envelope, under the seat not exposed under the auto, protected by a piece of "dollar store" plastic. I have been informed by the lee Subaru service manager that this module affects only the parking/emergency brake. I cannot verify this claim without a detailed schematic. Never the less, I have reservations concerning the brakes being applied with no driver input with a potentially disastrous effect. It was Fri., May. 2, 2014 when this service brakes issue occurred.

The vehicle involved was a 2006 Suzuki Forenza. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is KL5JD56Z86_. I slowed down to turn off of a busy street onto a side street. As I went to speed up to about 15-20 mph the car slammed on the brakes itself, my foot was on the gas. I put my foot on the brake for 20 seconds and then put my foot on the gas to try to drive again. The car again slammed on the brakes. I put my foot on the brake, put car in park and turned off the car. I turned it back on and was able to drive to a safe spot. I am terrified to drive it again. What if I had still been on the main road?. This service brakes issue occurred Dec. 31, 2012.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid. VIN of the vehicle was JTNBB46K17_. The vsc light appeared & the car lost brakes. Like others, I have expeirienced failure of the brake actuator / boost accumulator. Although the brakes work to a degree, there is no boost. Despite application of my maximum effort to depress the brake pedal, stopping distances are very long and stopping speeds are very slow. I consider the car dangerous to drive & has been shelved pending NHTSA review. Reports are that Toyota has known of this problem & has refused to address it NHTSA should require that Toyota replace this part at no cost to the consumer in view of Toyotas unconscionable behavior. The failure date was Wednesday, January 16, 2013.

The car is a 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. After purchasing the car (our first hybrid) we noticed that the breaks were acting different when slowing; while slowing down to stop at a stop light or sign or to slow in traffic, if the car is under 30 mph and hits a bump the breaks will release (while your foot is on the breaks) and the car will lunge forward even though your foot is pressing down and has not been released. This has happened over the past year and no one can seem to figure out the problem. The breaks are new and several forums have been read in regards to trying to figure out the issue. It seems that several hybrids experience the same issues. Breaking under 30, the car will hit a bump, breaks will release causing the car to lunge forward and possibly causing an accident. It has happened enough that our family is considering trading in the car. We have almost been in 10 plus accidents because we are almost stopped at the stop sign and the car hits a bump and accelerates into traffic coming from the left/right. With children in the back seat, this is a huge concern. We have sent Toyota an email asking for inspection, however they said they would just like to have our dealer look at it, however they have not been noted of this issue in the past, when clearly there are hundreds of others that are having the same issues and they have been in accidents. I find it very difficult to believe that acceleration/break release when hitting a bump causing the car to lunge forward into moving traffic is a safety concern when the breaks are perfectly good. We will be trading in the vehicle if something is not done about it shortly, not only are we worried about our family but we are also worried about others who could be involved. This issue has nothing to do with the breaks, they are good, and the issue is still re-occurring. This service brakes issue occurred 12/24/13.

The vehicle involved is a 2011 Volkswagen Routan. After buying my certified Routan and only putting around a 1000 miles on it the steering wheel would start to shake when braking at a speed of 40mph or faster. Took the car to the dealership and was told the front brakes need to be replaced. At first they said it would not be covered under warranty because it may have been caused by me pushing to hard on the brakes. Completely bull. They finally said it would be covered under warranty. Now at 31,000 the back brakes are squeaky and need to be replaced. Called the dealership and was told the same thing that the brakes are not covered under warranty but as before the brakes should last much longer. Taking it in tomorrow to have the brakes inspected. Hopefully will be covered. It was Jul. 1, 2013 when this service brakes issue happened.

The vehicle involved was a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta. Midnight, driving back from a friends house. My 16 month old (or rather new) Jetta se 2012, shakes up when I turn on ignition. I give it 2-3 seconds to calm down. It doesn't. Instead, the epc light goes on. Then the check engine light. Hmm. . . Weird. Those wern't on like 2 hours back, or ever infact. Being the Smart techie that I am, I try the highly technical solution to any problem that I don't quite understand - I try to turn it off and on again. The same god awful shaking and stuttering. But no epc light. I think to myself, maybe this is just a transient thing. Try to pull out of the parking space, and there it is . . . The damn epc and check engine light. But my home's only a mile away, maybe things get better on the way there. You know, its a new car (bought 16 months back, brand new, and has ~7600 miles on it). But no, as I try to "drive" the piece of shit, it starts shaking more violently when I get to 25 miles and hour. So, I pull over, and a quick google search tells me to stay below 20 mph and get it to a dealer ASAP. So I get the car towed, and the next day the dealer tells me its a faulty ignition coil that has been replaced and tested and things should just work. But I'm scared to get in that car again. What if this would've happened farther away from my house. This problem occurred on 05/18/14.

The vehicle having this issue was a 1999 Volvo S70. The VIN of this vehicle was YV1LS53D4X_. The first time it happen I was pulling out of my drive way. I came to a stop right outside my driveway waiting for it to be safe for me to pull out in on going traffic I push the gas pedal it gave me enough force to pull out on the street as soon as I try to give it more pick up but kinda idle got up to about 40 I would say bout soon as I hit forty it out of no where it wouldn't let me pick up or press on gas pedal when I would it would slow down so I try to push harder that is when the car died so I quickly pulled up on the side of the road because everything was locking up gas it would not let me accelerate my check engine let flash on and put my flash lights on and sat for a minute trying to figure out what was going on. I waiting a few seconds started the car it first let me accelerate enough to coast but in the drive way. My ets light flashes on but doesn't say on. So I thought maybe cause I was low on gas that could a have been the problem I have drove the car all week not a problem at all. So later that night I figure since the street wouldn't be busy I would drive up put some gas in there to see if that was the problem. Got in the car started right up went to the gasstation which is about 5mins from here pulled up in front of the pump turned off car it was a prepaid pump went inside gave them $8 came back out pump the gas got back into the car went to start it nothing so I wanted I tried again got it started soon as I went to push on the gas pedal it died then I turn the key back and try to start it again my ets light stays on this time but ce light flashes goes off some guy tries to give me a jump I push down on the gas it dies. When it died it kinda of sound everything was about to blow up it made a weird sound like a computer as you shut it down. . Took it to a car repair 3mths he had it then after trying all the codes -throttle body is what he said the problem. It was Dec. 17, 2013 when this service brakes issue occurred.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2007 Volvo Xc70. The VIN of the car is YV4SZ59217_. When reversing out of our garage first thing in the morning, brakes were nearly inoperative and required an additional 10-15 feet of stopping distance. Unable to depress the brake (hard brake). I almost ran in to a tree and hit my dog. Dealer diagnosed as a faulty brake vacuum pump switch and brake vacuum. Scariest thing I have ever had happen. Luckily, no one was hurt as we were in a large driveway and my husband was able to get the dog out of the way. Thank goodness we had the extra space. If this had been in a parking lot, I would have hit another car or hit a person without question. There was a recall for earlier model Volvos (s40 & v40) and should be for any Volvo vehicles with the same switch/brake vacuum before someone is injured severely or worse, killed. Volvo is founded on the safety on their vehicles and should stand behind this issue 110%. This problem occurred on Saturday, March 8, 2014.

The car is a 2013 Audi Q5. The VIN of the problem Q5 is WA1LFAFP7D_. I was traveling on the interstate and had to brake. As soon as I hit the brake pedal it fell to the floor and I fortunately was able to swerve to the shoulder and after hitting the brakes a few times them came back. About a week later my wife and kids experienced the same issue, again avoiding an accident. This seems like a common problem with posts on Audi forum. They offered an extension on the vehicle warranty but that doesn't prevent someone getting killed due to malfunctioning brakes. The failure date was Wed., Feb. 5, 2014.

The car was a 2014 Audi Q5. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Audi Q5 is WA1LFAFP6E_. This is the third incident where the car came to a stop, with no throttle response, when I made a hard left turn (u-turn from a standing stop) instead of accelerating as expected. There appear to be several thousand similar complaints in your database, from many different makes, where the abs system cuts power to the engine instead of allowing a rapid acceleration from a standing start, when there is no traction problem, and cutting the power creates an immediate risk of crash by oncoming traffic. The car was 'dead' for about two seconds and then power was restored, allowing me to avoid being hit by oncoming traffic. But the bigger issue appears to be that the abs system will sometimes cut power for no reason, endangering the driver and vehicle. This is apparently widely documented and ongoing since at least the year 2000, and not specific to Audi. Updated 3/20/lj updated 03/20/2014. This problem occurred on Mar. 3, 2014.

The vehicle involved is a 2006 BMW 525i. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is WBANE53596_. The owner has a 2006 BMW 5 series 525i. The contact stated that the emergency brake would have to be applied when attempting to brake to a complete stop. The brakes had not properly worked in the vehicle for an extended period of time and the contact had to apply the emergency brake in drive or reverse because the brakes would not stop the vehicle with the applying force. The vehicle had been taken to three repair shops where it was diagnosed that the power vacuum pump needed to be repaired. The vehicle was not included in NHTSA campaign id number: 10v446000 (service brakes, hydraulic) but had experienced the failure on multiple occasions. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 80,000. It was Tuesday, February 5, 2013 when this service brakes issue occurred.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Buick Lucerne. Car died while driving it. Lost power steering and brakes. Had car towed to dealer. It was diagnosed as having a faulty ignition module. I was lucky I was not on a highway at high speed. Given the company recalls on ignition parts on other nameplates, it is likely that the Buicks are also seeing ignition problems and failures but gm has not issued a recall for this car platform. I hope that no one is seriously injured or killed before this defective part is recalled. I consider myself lucky. The failure date was Wednesday, May. 21, 2014.

The vehicle is a 2004 Buick Rendezvous. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 3G5DA03E64_. I purchased a used car from jim doran auto center3075 n hwy 99w po box 598 mc minngville, or 97128 503-472-3131 this vehicle was advertised as a "cream puff" meaning the vehicle was in excellent condition and after I received it in California it cost me over $3,000 in repairs. Please remember that even know the SUV sold to me by this dealership was sold (as-is) but advertised and a car in excellent condition. I have paid over $3,000 in repairs to this car just to bring it up to pass a dmv vehicle inspection for California. Some kind of resolution to satisfy me monetarily for the repairs for the false advertising that this dealership posted online for the sale of the vehicle. The car sold to 2004 Buick Rendezvous sold (as-is) but the SUV was advertised as a "cream puff" being in excellent condition and it's been anything but! the value of the vehicle is just under $6,000 in excellent condition and this vehicle was not even in fair condition. This service brakes issue occurred April 5, 2013.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2013 Cadillac Cts. On 8/9/13 during a lane change on the highway under acceleration the car downshifted and the rpm went high and the car had no power and seemed to just coast. I let off the gas to let the engine rpms come back down and I checked the automatic shifter to make sure it was still in drive (and it was). When the engine rpms came down the power also came back to the wheels. I have experienced a random shudder in the car under light throttle when the automatic transmission is shifting (such as in traffic) both prior to and after this event. The dealer could not duplicate the problem during a test drive. On 5/3/14 I was backing up in a driveway upon starting the car and there were no power brakes. I pressed the brake pedal to the floor and did manage to stop the car. Once I lifted off of the brake pedal the power brakes seemed to work. This is another randomly occurring problem with this car. Upon driving the car immediately upon startup the power brakes do not seem to work for 30 seconds to a minute. I have had this problem randomly before this date (I noticed it before last winter) but it seems to be getting worse. Hopefully the dealer can duplicate this problem. On 5/6/14 I was driving on a side street and lost all engine power, power steering and power brakes. The dealer told me the engine seized up. The car had approx. 14,400 miles on it at the time of the 5/6/14 incident. The car is at the dealership now for repair. This issue happened on Friday, August 9, 2013.
