I purchased my 2022 3.0L diesel Trail Boss in August of 2023 and believe I have the biggest piece of shit lemon known.

15,000 KM - Injectors go, here's the fun part.... It lights my dash up like a christmas tree and I lost all braking power. Thankfully I was on flat ground as I was able to coast to a stop. Dealer replaced injectors and wiring harness.
16,520 KM - Front brakes LOCK UP at highway speed (110km/hr). No other vehicle around to trigger the collision avoidance, lane departure system was off
Dealer replaced both CV Axles claiming this was the issue.
Same appointment, they also replaced a leaf spring pack, drivers side as the bushing was toast.

Approx 21,000 KM - Front brakes LOCK UP again at 110km/hr. It was a Sunday and I needed to get my kid to hockey so the dealer didn't get it until Monday. On my way there I experience a lag in throttle, and then check engine light comes on.
Dealer assesses and claims the transmission valve body failed and this caused the lock up that happened the day before. Honestly, they are fu$$ing stupid.

38,000 KM - Front Brakes once again lock up at highway speeds. We are now into the end October and I live in Northern Alberta Canada where winter hits the beginning of October through to March/April/May.. Shit roads but luckily this day, the roads were dry. Inform the dealer, bring it in for an appointment and they can not find anything wrong. They said it must be because I had it in "auto" as opposed to 2 wheel drive. It WAS NOT in Auto but they stuck to that being the issue....... no repairs completed

January, 45,000 KM - -50 degrees Celsius, ice fog (for those who don't experience that weather, this causes poor driving conditions. Front tires once again lock up at 110 Km/hr. I lost control but managed to correct and stay on the road. Had someone been next to me, it would have been a collision.
They told me this time there is an engineer bulletin regarding the 2022 camera. It does not have long range but must be faulting and sensing something on the highway in front of me and doing the emergency braking as if it senses a head on collision. They have upgraded the camera but I don't trust the fix. This is the fourth time this has happened and they just happen to come across this bulletin this time?? They expect me to continue driving it with this "fix", the same people who said having the transfer case in auto would cause a front brake lock up at highway speeds. I have never in my life experienced such a safety concern with a vehicle except when I was a teen driving the most rusted out POS on purpose lol. Canada does not have a "lemon law" and the dealer refuses to work with me on anything.

Has anyone else experienced this issue, or heard of it? I feel like they are just throwing parts at the truck hoping something sticks......
 
Wow, I don't even know what to say. Have you looked into a way to disable the emergency braking feature?

I had collision detection without automatic braking in my 2016 Impala, twice while at highway speeds the alert went off while driving under a bridge. I was thankful at the time that the car was not equipped with the ability to brake on it's own. That's some scary crap man.

I haven’t had that particular problem but as a fellow Canadian I’m painfully aware of the lack of a lemon law here.
