I was pulling in to my car port coming to a stop with my foot on the brake and the car unexpectedly lunged forward the brakes could not had it and my foot was on only the brake.2 weeks later I was pulling into a parking spot with my foot on the brake coming to a stop and the car lunged forward unexpectedly, luckily no one was on the side walk.I had to take the car in for the ignition key recall and I told the dealership to look at it for this problem, when I went to pickup the car the dealership told me they ran a diagnostic system test and found nothing, I showed the tech the post on this site id number10638610, as that post has the same problem, and it stated at the end of the post that there was 2 recalls for that VIN number car pertaining to what lead/caused that accident, to show the tech that GM has a fix for it on recall and the tech stated that was only for that VIN number on recall and that I would have to notify GM corperate on this I notified GM corperate through email on this matter and now waiting response, this is an unintended acceleration problem

Approaching a three-way intersection with a stop sign with intent to stop and turn right. Vehicle suddenly accelerated without accelerator input from driver. Driver was unable to brake/stop vehicle or effectively control steering/path of travel. Vehicle, according to state patrol, gains an estimated speed of 65 mph through intersection and collides with embankment/mountain hillside. At this time, car became airborne to an estimated height of 28' and landed on front driver side of vehicle first. Front airbags failed to deploy upon impact. Driver sustained a serious tbi(traumatic brain injury) & concussion due to blunt force trauma to the head due to lack of airbag deployment. Owner still continues to suffer from side effects of the tbi injury and wants to notify the public that life-threatening issues exist with this vehicle. To date, GM has issued two major recalls on this vehicle pertaining to what lead/caused the accident.

Throttle body positioner is bad after barely over 3 years of use. Was reducing speed from 55 to 0, after coming off a highway approaching a stop light, and while in neutral "engine power is reduced" warning displayed on screen, vehicle began idling irregularly (bouncing between 800 and 1100 rpms) and then when the light turned green the car would not accelerate. Was able to limp at about 20 mph until I reached a parking lot, turned the car off and waited a few minutes, restarted and it was fine again. Problem has occurred on 3 separate occasions recently, GM mechanic said throttle body positioner was determined to be at fault. Should not be any faults after 3 years and 40K unless the part itself is faulty.
