ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

5/19/2016 - LEWISTON, ID
MY TRACTION STABILITY LIGHT CAME ON. TOOK IT TO THE DEALERSHIP WHERE THEY CHARGED ME $100.00 TO DIAGNOSE IT AND TAPE A SENSOR. A WEEK LATER IT CAME ON AGAIN, I LOOKED THIS ISSUE UP ON THE INTERNET AND EVERYBODY IS HAVING THESE PROBLEMS. WHY IS THIS NOT A SAFETY RECALL? I HAVE LESS THAN 46,000 MILES ON MY VEHICLE, I SHOULD NOT BE HAVING THIS ISSUE. GM BETTER DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.
