Cadillac - Unintended Acceleration
2008 CTS - Complaint
I have a 2008 Cadillac CTS. I purchased it as a "Certified" that's a joke, Cadillac. I experienced unintended acceleration in a Walmart Parking Lot with people crossing in front and back. Thank God my foot was on the brake.
Courtesy Chevrolet, Salisbury, Md said they found the problem and fixed it. 300 miles later, I am sitting behind a car in the bank drive thru, foot lightly on the brake, and my engine starts roaring, back wheels screaming & smoking. Turned the engine off. had dealer come get it and it's been reported to Cadillac, to no avail, National Safety Bureau, Better Business Bureau, Facebook and anywhere else I can warn drivers of GM Vehicles.
I discovered that it's a widespread problem that is being covered up by GM, instead of recalling and fixing the problem with "ENHANCED SMART PEDAL TECHNOLOGY". It is in the software messaging from the brake to the throttle to GO instead of STOP. They know it's happening and they know the fix. I have the articles to prove what I am saying.
