While driving, vehicle completely shutdown without warning. Vehicle will not go forward, but will go into reverse. After approximately two hours, vehicle will restart and return to normal conditions. Dealer cannot correct the problem.

  • Automatic transmission

Vehicle is going 45-55mph it starts to decelerate. Steering gets stiff. Oil pressure light comes on, and when brakes are applied vehicle begins to accelerate without pressing on accelerator pedal. Problem has duplicated itself many times, but dealer can't duplicate this problem to find a solution. Once vehicle is restarted there is no problem.
