VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

11/22/2014 - GLENDALE HEIGHTS, IL
I BOUGHT A 2011 TRAVERSE LAST WINTER. I WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT MY NEW FAMILY CAR. WEDNESDAY, THE SERVICE STABILITRAK, SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL AND REDUCED ENGINE SPEED CAME ON WITH NO NOTICE. LUCKILY, I WAS ON A NEIGHBORHOOD SIDE STREET TAKING MY KIDS TO SCHOOL. I CALLED TO SETUP AN APPT TO HAVE A CHEVY DEALER LOOK AT IT BUT AFTER TURNING IT OFF WHILE FILLING THE TIRES UP THE LIGHTS ALL WENT OFF. CALLED BACK TO SEE IF THEY STILL WANTED TO SEE IT AND THEY SAID NO BECAUSE IT MUST HAVE JUST BEEN A SENSOR... APPT CANCELED. THURSDAY DROVE WITH NO PROBLEMS. NOW TODAY, FRIDAY, I HOP ON THE EXPRESSWAY IN CHICAGO TRAFFIC AND BAM RIGHT AS I AM MERGING, DING DING AND MY CAR JUST REVS AND WON'T GET UP PAST 40 MPH, ALL THE SAME SERVICE LIGHTS CAME ON. SO SCARY! I HAVE MY LITTLE KIDS IN THE BACKSEAT AND TERRIFIED TO PULL OVER ON THE SIDE OF THE EISENHOWER, SLOWLY GET TO THE NEXT EXIT AS I PRAY WE WON'T GET REAR ENDED. CALL AS SOON AS I MAKE IT HOME FOR ANOTHER APPT AND THE FIRST TIME ANY CHEVY DEALER NEAR ME HAS OPEN IS 4 DAYS FROM NOW. LOOKS LIKE WE WILL BE PARKED AT HOME FOR THE NEXT 4 DAYS. IT REALLY FRUSTATES ME THAT WE BOUGHT THIS "RELIABLE FAMILY VEHICLE" THAT I AM NOW SCARED TO DRIVE MY FAMILY IN. IT'S EVEN WORSE NOW GOOGLING THIS ISSUE AND SEEING MANY OTHER HAVING THE EXACT SAME ISSUES AND NOTHING IS BEING DONE FOR US.

VISIBILITY/WIPER

11/19/2014 - GILBERTSVILLE, NY
I WENT TO TURN ON MY WINDSHEILD WIPERS BECAUSE IT WAS RAINING AND THE ONLY SPEED THAT WOULD WORK WAS THE FASTEST SPEED. NOTHING ELSE WORKS EXCEPT WHEN YOU TURN THEM ON ALL THE WAY.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

11/18/2014 - PETOSKEY, MI
STABILITRAK CONTROL, ANTI LOCK BRAKES AND ENGINE SPEED REDUCED. WIFE'S CAR WHILE ON HER WAY TO WORK. THERE ARE HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF CONSUMERS WITH THIS EXACT SAME ISSUE WITH VARIOUS MAKES/MODELS OF GM VEHICLES. ONCE THE THROTTLE BODY / THROTTLE POSITIONS SENSOR BECOMES DIRTY, IT SETS OFF A SERIES OF FAILURES CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO REDUCE POWER TO THE POINT WHERE IT CAN ONLY TRAVEL AT ABOUT 35 MPH. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION TO PLACE DRIVERS IN. I CALLED MY LOCAL CHEVROLET DEALER TO INQUIRE ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THIS WAS COVERED UNDER THE 5 YEAR 100,000 MILE POWER TRAIN WARRANTY AND WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS. WHEN THE DEALER VERIFIED THAT IT WAS THE THROTTLE BODY, THEY TOLD ME THAT IT WOULD COST ME ABOUT 500 DOLLARS AND THAT IT WAS NOT COVERED UNDER THE POWERTRAIN WARRANTY. THIS IS A VITAL ENGINE COMPONENT. HOW CAN IT NOT BE CONSIDERED TO BE PART OF THE POWER TRAIN?

11/18/2014 - LAKE RIDGE, VA
FOUR TIMES TODAY AS I WAS DRIVING MY CHEVY TRAVERSE THE TRACTION CONTROL WENT OFF, THE STABILITY CONTROL WENT OFF, AND A MESSAGE FLASHED THAT I COULD EXPERIENCE A REDUCTION IN POWER, WHICH HAPPENED IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE NOTIFICATION. THE CAR BARELY HAD ENOUGH POWER TO MAKE IT SAFELY OUT OF TRAFFIC. THIS HAPPENED ONE OTHER TIME LAST YEAR BUT WHEN WE BROUGHT IT TO THE DEALER THEY COULD NOT REPLICATE THE PROBLEM.
