Motor stops running while in movement in gears of forward and reverse. Driver has no control of the car. Steering works but no breaks or power to power train. Motor just shuts down with out any notice. This happens while in movement on public roads, freeways and while parking.

When traveling at about 35 mph, all systems failed -- steering, braking, electrical. The dealer indicates that this is a "catastrophic engine failure."

Powersteering gets tight and vehicle shakes. Brought to dealer and powersteering pump and gear is leaking fluid. The GM dealer told me that the powersteering part is covered but will not cover the fluid leaking and I am responsible for $500 payment. Brake pedal squeaks when pressed down. GM dealer informed that the brake is leaking and needs a brake fluid flush and a new brake booster.
