Vehicle died while driving with no prior warning or error messages-complete engine failure, loss of power steering, brakes. Unable to restart after several attempts. Mechanic determined that the ECM had failed unexpectedly. When computer was replaced, they were unable to detect any sensor issues that may have contributed to ECM failure, they concluded that the ECM had failed while driving. Had it failed on freeway, results could have been catastrophic.

My car while driving on the highway has turned off out of nowhere while driving 60 mph while the car is still moving I put the car in neutral turn the ignition off N then back and the car turns right back on but some days this happens more then others. This problem has been going on for several months I have been in and out of the dealership. And they still to this day can't tell me what is the problem. But I have done research and there a lot of these incidents going on with GMC vehicles idk why they say they can't find problem or fix it. They just want me driving on the highway with my family when the car stalls out. This problem isn't everyday it seems to happen 3-5 times a month. I don't remember the exact dates but this problem has been going on since I got the car. If the dealer can't tell me what's wrong what am I suppose to.

The car shut off while driving down a hill this is the second time it has happened I checked with GM to see if there was a recall for this car and at this time there is not. We were lucky both times that there were no other vehicles around and that the car was kept under control while bringing it to a stop. Although GM has no recalls for this car I am filling this complaint because of the many recalls that are out there for this same problem. Will the third time be a charm when it happens and someone gets killed or seriously injured for GM to include this car? it will be to late!!!!!!!

The contact owns a 2010 Cadillac Cts. The contact stated that when she depressed the accelerator pedal, the vehicle was slow to accelerate. After a few seconds, the vehicle would move forward as if it had been rear-ended and then the speed would increase. The failure occurred numerous times. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer several times but the failure could not be determined. The transmission fluid, piston, filter and fuel kit were replaced but the failure occurred. The contact called the manufacurer who took a complaint and stated that they would try to correct the problem. The failure mileage was 1,819 and the current mileage was 3,324.
