WHILE DRIVING MESSAGE READ REDUCED ENGINE POWER LOST ALL POWER COULD NOT CONTROL THE STEERING WHEEL! THEN THE CAR SHUT DOWN AND CONTINUED TO ROLL DOWN THE HIGHWAY .ALMOST GOT HIT BY OTHER CARS FROM BEHIND. VERY FRIGHTENING FOR ME I ALMOST GOT A PANIC ATTACK. I MANAGED TO STOP THE CAR ON THE SHOULDER OF THE ROAD WITH HALF OF THE CAR STILL BLOCKING OTHER CARS .CAR WILL NOT START. THE BATTERY IS NEW .I HAVE DONE RESEARCH ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND THERE'S THOUSANDS OF GM CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE OR ARE FACING THE SAME ISSUES. IS THIS ANOTHER COVER UP BY GM THAT'S CONTINUOUSLY IGNORING THIS PROBLEM AND THE CONSUMERS ARE PAYING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN THIS REPAIR.
