I have a brand new Dodge Caliber 2009. It has 4000 miles on it. Yesterday morning, I turned on my car and put my car in reverse. As I was moving backwards, my car was moving backward cricked, so I was turning the steering wheel to straighten it out. The steering wheel locked and would not turn or move. I pressed on the break. The break locked halfway. So, I decided to put my car back in its parking spot. So, I put my car in drive and pressed the gas. The gas petal was locked too. The most scary thing was the car moved in reverse rather than forward at this point. I pressed on the break again, and once again, the break was locked (and the driving wheel was still locked). I turned the car off and turned it back on and the car was fine at this point.
What could be the reasoning behind this situation with my car? Should I wait to see if this happens again with my car before taking it into the shop? Hope this email was not too confusing?
