2005 Cadillac CTS Owner Comments

CTS 6-cyl

05 Cadillac Cts 2.8L traveling at about 55/60 miles per hour...car pulled in front of me cut me off. To avoid collision, I slammed on brakes and car died. I called dealer immediately and advised, asking was this some kind of special feature, dealer advised car not designed to do such and asked me about quantity of gas I had in the vehicle. I advised 1/4 tank and dealer explained by slamming on my brakes all gas ran to front of tank leaving air pocket causing car to die....also after just purchasing the car, sitting at red light and the whole car shook and motor revved up high rpms and died...both times the vehicle did start back up.. nothing has been done to correct due to dealer advised the vehicle must do the same thing to them. I am fully aware recall is it out for this exact problem, but I have not been notified of the recall and unable to get any cooperation from dealerships regarding the above problem....the recall advised must keep 1/4 tank of gas or more in vehicle at all times to avoid engine failure, also states will have to reprogram the ECM (electronic control module) with new software.
