My wife was driving and made a right hand turn into a parking lot. The car by itself automatically shut off and the gear shift went by itself from drive position into park. The car did restart. The dealer cannot find anything wrong with the car.

I was driving a 2014 Cadillac Cts on 04/27/14, in fremont, ca. Vehicle configuration: 2014 Cts 3.6L rwd performance. VIN, to the best of my knowledge: 1G6as5S39E0[xxx] the incident occurred at approximately 11am. The planned travel route was as follows: Fremont Cadillac, 5939 automall pkwy, fremont, ca ||| nw on boyce road ||| N on stevenson blvd ||| interstate-880S ||| exit automall pkwy ||| fremont Cadillac. I traveled North on stevenson blvd and then headed for the onramp for interstate 880-South. When I approached the freeway onramp I noticed, all of a sudden, a delay between pedal application and power. I demonstrated this to my passenger twice over, by gently letting off the gas and applying it again... at which point the vehicle's check engine light came on, accompanied with a loss of traction control and stability control, reduced engine power, and shuddering during gear shifts. The vehicle was traveling approximately 40mph at the time. Aside from the aforementioned issues, no other problems with the vehicle were observed. I only traveled two miles before experiencing these issues. As this was a brand new car on a test drive, it obviously had very few miles on the odometer. Upon returning to the car dealership, the sales associates pulled the car back onto the sales lot, moved other new cars out of the way, and parked the car amongst other new vehicles for sale. The vehicle was most certainly not pulled into the service drive. Needless to say, this is unsettling news. I have no faith that the vehicle was properly inspected, nor do I have faith that the dealership will responsibly handle this matter. It is my recommendation that GM withdraws this vehicle from dealer inventory and performs an independent assessment of the vehicle.
