: the contact stated that the left front anti-lock brake locked up when a left turn was made while traveling 15 mph. The contact stated that the service stability system light illuminated once a week. The vehicle came equipped with hydraulic brakes. The left front anti-lock brake lock up occurred on a dry pavement. The contact stated that the vehicle does not lock up everytime a left turn is made. The vehicle was taken to the dealership for inspection several times. The dealership could not determine what caused the problem. Updated 09/05/06.

Consumer complained about a brake problem. Intermittently, while driving at 35 mph or above and if needed to come to an immediate stop it won't stop like it should. Took vehicle to dealer, and they said brake pads were fine, and they did need not take apart the ABS system. Also, they checked a diagnostic machine, but it did not show any codes. Consumer's vehicle rear ended another vehicle due to brake failure. Noticed this around August 1, 2005.

Turning slowly to the right and over bumpy road surfaces, vehicle applies brakes on its own.
