STS 8-cyl

I was at a complete stop. I started going up the driveway, I felt the car lurch foreward. I thought I was slamming on the brake, but hit the gas instead. The car crashed into the house moving the concrete block. The airbags did not deploy. I broke my neck at C4 and C5. I have seen 3 reports on this site detailing the same. All these cars were 2007 Cadillac Sts. With all the problems with GM and airbags, could this be related?

STS 6-cyl

My wife went to the local gas station and as she was pulling in she made a right hand turn past the pumps to park. She hit the brakes and the car sped up. She slammed them harder and it slightly slowed down but she hit 2 guard rails and then crashed into the cinderblock wall destroying the front bumper, both front fenders, headlights and the internal aluminum bumper was crushed as it was designed to do. The air bags did not go off but she was not hurt. She said the car sped up while the brakes were deployed. Also, after she hit the wall she tried to put the card in reverse but she had to put it in neutral to actually go in reverse. The car is at the mechanic being fixed at this time but I am concerned about this speeding up instead of stopping when the brakes are applied... this is not a good thing and the insurance company said it was up to me to find the cause. Someone from Cadillac or NHTSA needs to come and look at this before the car is fixed.

The contact owns a 2007 Cadillac Sts. The contact stated that the vehicle was started and the brakes were applied as she shifted into drive. The vehicle then abnormally accelerated and crashed into another vehicle parked in the driveway causing that vehicle to crash into the contacts home. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic where the body damage was repaired. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired for the acceleration failure. The approximate failure mileage was 36,000.
