SERVICE BRAKES

8/6/2014 - ST. LOUIS, MO
SEE NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 14V252000 ; GM RECALL NOTICE 13036 DATED JUL 2014. I'VE BEEN IN TWO NEAR REAR END COLLISIONS DUE TO BRAKE LIGHT FAILURE; I WAS PULLED OVER BY THE POLICE & TOLD THAT MY BRAKE LIGHTS WERE STAYING LIT WHILE DRIVING AND THEN I WAS PULLED OVER AGAIN & TOLD THAT MY BRAKE LIGHTS WERE NOT LIT UP WHEN I BRAKING. I WAS ABLE TO SHOW BOTH OFFICERS THE RECALL NOTICE I RECEIVED FROM GM & I WAS ADVISED TO GET THE PROBLEM FIXED IMMEDIATELY AS I WAS PUTTING MYSELF AND OTHERS AT RISK OF POSSIBLE ACCIDENT AND INJURIES. WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY, THE CRUISE CONTROL WAS ENABLED AND WOULD NOT DISENGAGE WHEN I BRAKED NOR DISENGAGE WHEN I PRESSED THE ON/OFF BUTTON. I HAD TO CYCLE THE KEY OFF/ON IN ORDER TO DISENGAGE THE CRUISE CONTROL. OTHER TIMES, THE CRUISE WILL NOT ENGAGE WHEN ON/OFF BUTTON IS PRESSED. I AM ALSO HAVING ISSUES SHIFTING FROM PARK TO DRIVE OR REVERSE, ALSO E.S.C. ISN'T WORKING AS IT SHOULD, NOR THE PANIC BRAKE ASSIST FEATURES. LIGHTS FOR E.S.C. TCS RANDOMLY FLASH AND FLICKER. ALL THESE ARE INDICATIONS ARE CONSISTENT WITH THE GM RECALL NOTICE 13036. AS STATED BEFORE, I HAVE ALMOST BEEN IN TWO COLLISIONS AND BEEN PULLED OVER TWICE. CONTACTED GM FIVE TIMES - CASE #71-1338490125 ON FILE. GM STATED THAT MY CAR MUST BE SERVICED BY LOCAL DEALERSHIP BUT WILL NOT COVER COSTS. THE LOCAL DEALER WANTS DIAGNOSTIC FEES UP FRONT, WHICH I CANNOT AFFORD. GM HASN'T NOTIFIED DEALERSHIPS OF THE RECALL 13036 TO DATE. DO I NEED TO BE INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT, HARMING MYSELF AND OTHERS, BEFORE THIS IS ADDRESSED BY GM? DOES THERE HAVE TO BE LOSS OF LIFE TO GET GM TO FIX THE KNOWN ISSUES OUTLINED IN RECALL 13036? HOW CAN I RELY ON SAFE TRANSPORTATION UNTIL THIS IS FIXED? IN CLOSING, I SEEK ASSISTANCE IN ADDRESSING THE BLATANT DISREGARD OF PUBLIC SAFETY THAT GM HAS SHOWN TO ME AND OTHER CUSTOMERS. I WOULD LIKE TO GET MY CAR FIXED AT NO COST TO ME. HELP!!
