VEHICLE HAS SERVICE AIRBAG ON REPEATEDLY, SEAT BELT ALARM GOES OFF EVEN WHEN SEAT BELT IS PROPERLY FASTENED. WHILE DRIVING CAR SUDDENLY LOST POWER AND SERVICE ESC, SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL, ENGINE POWER REDUCED. CAR SUDDENLY DROPPED DOWN TO 27 MPH IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC.

MY CAR SHUT OFF AS I WAS DRIVING ON 4 OCCASIONS. AFTER THE SCEOND TIME THE CAR SHUT OFF AS I WAS MAKING A RIGHT TURN AT A LIGHT ON A CITY STREET. THE NEXT DAY I HAD THE CAR TOWED TO A CHEVROLET DEALERSHIP AND I WAS TOLD IT WAS A FAULTY INTAKE ACTUATOR AND EXHAUST ACTUATOR SOLENOID VALVE, THE AIR FILTER WAS ON WRONG AND THERE WAS CARBON BUILD UP INSIDE THE THROTTLE AND THE COOLING SYSTEM NEEDED TO BE FLUSHED THAT WAS ON 8/8/16. COSTING $700. ON 8/12/16 IT STOPPED RUNNING AGAIN ON THE GARDEN STATE PARKWAY. I WAS ABLE TO START THE CAR IT BUCKED SOME. TODAY ON 8/13/16 I TRIED TO USE THE CAR TO PICK UP ONE OF MY CHILDREN AND IT STOPPED AGAIN AS I WAS DRIVING ON A CITY STREET. MY CONCERN IS ONE THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE.
