TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM

8/11/2014 - BEAVER DAM, WI
2011 CHEVROLET TRAVERSE. CONSUMER WRITES IN REGARDS TO ISSUES WITH THE TRACTION CONTROL FEATURES. THE CONSUMER STATED WHEN DECREASING ACCELERATION, APPROACHING A CURVE OR STOP SIGN, THE TRANSMISSION DOWN SHIFTED CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO GO INTO AN UNCONTROLLABLE SKID WITH THE FRONT WHEELS ACTUALLY LOCKING UP. ALSO, WHEN HE APPLIED THE BRAKE, WHEN HE APPROACHED A CURVE OR STOP SIGN, THE ABS OVER-REACTED, WHICH CAUSED THE VEHICLE TO GO INTO A SKID. BOTH INCIDENTS HAPPENED WHILE DRIVING ON SNOW COVERED ROADS. WHEN IT FIRST HAPPENED, HE WENT THOUGH THE STOP SIN AND ENDED UP IN A DITCH WHEN GOING AROUND TWO MODERATE CURVES AT SLOW SPEED. THE CONSUMER READ THE OWNER'S MANUAL AND DISCOVERED THE TRACTION CONTROL COULD BE TURNED OFF BY FLIPPING A SWITCH. AFTER DOING SO, THE VEHICLE PERFORMED FLAWLESSLY WITH SLIPPERY CONDITIONS AND CONTINUED TO DO SO AS LONG AS THE TRACTION CONTROL WAS TURNED OFF. THE PROBLEM WAS AMPLIFIED BY THE FACT, THE TRACTION CONTROL WAS AUTOMATICALLY ON WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS STARTED.

SEAT BELTS

8/1/2014 - RIVERVIEW, MI
I TOOK MY VEHICLE IN FOR THE SEAT BELT RECALL. THE RECALL WAS PERFORMED, LEAVING QUESTIONS. HOW DOES REMOVING THE SLEEVE ON THE SEAT BELT AND REPLACING IT WITH SHRINK WRAP PLASTIC MAKE THIS SAFER? THERE IS NOW NOTHING TO PREVENT THE SEAT BELT CABLE FROM RUBBING ON THE SIDES OF THE NOW HOLE WHERE THE SLEEVE WAS. NOT TO MENTION THIS LEAVES THIS AREA LOOKING TERRIBLE AND UNFINISHED.

STEERING

7/31/2014 - KATONAH, NY
ON FRIDAY, JULY 25, 2014, MY 2011 CHEVY TRAVERSE STALLED/SHUTDOWN WHILE DRIVING. I PULLED OUT OF A LOCAL GAS STATION AND IMMEDIATELY NOTICED THAT THERE WAS A NOISE COMING FROM THE ENGINE. ALMOST SIMULTANEOUSLY THE CAR BEGAN TO STALL/SHUTDOWN. I PULLED OVER TO THE SHOULDER (FORTUNATELY THERE WAS ONE). I TURNED THE AC UNIT AND RADIO OFF. I STARTED THE CAR WITHOUT ANY NOISE. I DROVE APPROXIMATELY 1 MILE, TURNED THE AC BACK ON AND THE CAR STALLED/SHUTDOWN ONCE AGAIN, THIS TIME AS THE CAR WAS GOING APPROXIMATELY 35 MPH. TO SAY THE LEAST, I WAS EXTREMELY DISTRAUGHT AS THE CAR LOST POWER AND STEERING. FORTUNATELY, (FOR MY FAMILY AND CHEVY), THERE WERE NO CHILDREN IN THE CAR AND THERE WAS NO ACCIDENT. THE SERVICE MANAGER TOLD ME THAT THE PROBLEM WAS RELATED TO THE AC UNIT AND WANTS TO CHARGE ME ALMOST $2,000 TO FIX! THE AC UNIT WAS "FIXED" BACK IN JUNE 2013 WHILE CAR WAS UNDER WARRANTY. IT IS NO LONGER COVERED BY WARRANTY. MY ISSUE IS THAT THE CAR STALLED/SHUT DOWN. A CAR SHUTTING DOWN AT ANY SPEED IS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER. TRAVELING AT 35 MPH CREATES AN EVEN MORE DANGEROUS SITUATION. IF THE AC UNIT CAN STALL A VEHICLE THEN THIS HAS TO BE AN INHERENT DESIGN/PRODUCTION ISSUE. THERE IS NO ACCEPTABLE WAY THAT AN AC UNIT CAN FAIL AND THUS CAUSE THE VEHICLE TO SHUT DOWN PUTTING PEOPLE'S LIVES IN DANGER. HOPEFULLY, MY INCIDENT REPORT WILL PREVENT ANY FUTURE PROBLEMS LIKE THIS FROM OCCURRING, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, PROTECT PEOPLE'S LIVES.
