The contact owns a 2003 Cadillac Cts (the contact was not sure if model was correct). While driving 25 mph, the vehicle stalled. He pulled over and was able to restart the vehicle.

I am and have been experiencing numerous failures with my vehicle. I have contacted GM numerous times beginning approximately a few months after I purchased the vehicle to inform them that the vehicle is defective, only to be told my vehicle is out of warranty, so they refuse to fix it or give my one that is not defective. My vehicle is still defective to this date.

When driving at varying speeds the stability system comes on, disengaging the cruise control if on, and jerking the vehicle to the left. Took the vehicle to dealer for repair, but situation not resolved. The stability system engaged message comes on at an average of every 2 minutes.
