Summary:
I WAS DRIVING MY SISTER-IN-LAW’S 2008 CADILLAC CTS HOME FROM WORK ONE NIGHT IN DECEMBER. I CAME UP TO THE STREET OUT OF THE MALL PARKING LOT AND PUT MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE TO SLOW DOWN. SUDDENLY, THE ENGINE TOOK OFF AND REVVED UP TO AROUND 4000RPMS, SO MUCH I COULD HARDLY HOLD IT WITH THE BRAKES. I PUT IN PARK AND REACHED DOWN TO FEEL THE FLOOR MAT TO SEE IF IT WAS ON THE ACCELERATOR. IT WAS NOT. I TURNED OFF THE CAR. THE NEXT DAY, I TOOK IT TO THE GM DEALER. I DON’T THINK THEY BELIEVED ME BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT REPEAT THE CONDITION. THEY HAD ME LEAVE THE CAR AND THEY SAID THEY WOULD LOOK AT IT. THE NEXT DAY I PICKED UT UP. THEY SAID THAT THEY HAD RE-PROGRAMMED THE THROTTLE BODY CONTROL UNIT. I LEFT WITH THE CAR AND PROCEEDED TO EXIT THE LOT. JUST AS I GOT TO THE STREET, IT TOOK OFF AGAIN, REVVING TO ABOUT 4000 RPMS OR SO. I IMMEDIATELY WENT BACK AND TOLD THE DEALER WHAT HAPPENED. THEY STARED AT EACH OTHER AND SHRUGGED THEIR SHOULDERS. THEY NEVER FIXED THE PROBLEM. I AM CONVINCED THAT THIS IS A SOFTWARE ISSUE IN THE THROTTLE CONTROL SYSTEM, JUST LIKE TOYOTA IS DEALING WITH. IF MY WIFE HAD BEEN DRIVING THIS CAR, SHE COULD HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY INJURED. THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM AND NEEDS ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY,. IT IS NOT JUST TOYOTA. *TR
