Incident #1: i was driving on a 45 mph road that i frequently drive. Alarm and lights flashing to warn me of an impending crash. **there were no other vehicles on this road driving in either direction. 1/15/2021 incident#2. I was driving on a 45 mph road near home. Navigation started on its own giving directions given to drive to a location that was never entered previously into the system. 2/4//21
Brakes failed when driving down my driveway, which is a steep hill. Received six error "service now" messages: service advancetrac, check brake system, hill descent control fault, park brake malfunction, pre-collision assist not available. Was able to roll to a stop and had to call tow truck. Subsequent conversation with dealer service dept , was told recall 20u29 applies. Gave me a dozen 'codes' for faulty/affected systems on car before i stopped him because i did not understand the acronyms. I have searched and cannot find a recall by that number. The brake failure was scary and i am glad it occurred at home.
