Mileage: 4,833 I had been waiting in line at a carwash, and when it was my turn to enter, I began to slowly move forward. As I was inching forward, my car began to move faster than it should. I applied the brake, but I did not have any and my steering was locked. It felt like my car stalled, but at the same time, it kept moving forward. Fortunately, I was able to engage my emergency brake to prevent me from crashing. This is the 2nd time this has happened. The first time was in August of '07. That time, I was parked at the top of my sloped driveway. The car lurched forward and I had no brakes or steering and my car rolled down the hill and into a brick wall. I ended up in the er with a neck injury. The dealership found nothing. My car has been in and out of the dealership for various problems tied to the electrical system of the car. (ex. The traction control would engage inappropriately or would stop me dead in the middle of the road, the trunk came open while I was driving, it would have pickup hesitation, it would also feel as if it were accelerating itself while I was driving, my oil life reading was off by 38%, car had to be reprogrammed because the power train system detected a malfunction in the engine control system, the gas gauge and low fuel warning lights are not performing accurately.) as of today, my car has been in the shop for 17 days as they continue to attempt to fix my problems. If you factor in the time it was in their after my accident due to the malfunction of the car, it has been over 77 days in the past 10 months.
