2/23/2015 - BATAVIA, OH
I WAS TRAVELING DOWN THE ROAD WITH MY FAMILY IN THE VEHICLE WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN THE VEHICLE DECELERATED AND STARTING VIBRATING AND OPERATING ROUGHLY. THE STABILITRAK/REDUCED ENGINE POWER TROUBLE LIGHT WAS DISPLAYED. THIS CERTAINLY BECAME AN IMMEDIATE SAFETY CONCERN BECAUSE THE VEHICLE COULD ONLY ACCELERATE TO 15 TO 30 MPH. I WAS ABLE TO MANAGE THE PROBLEM LONG ENOUGH TO RETURN HOME, WHICH WAS ONLY A FEW MILES AWAY FROM THE ONSET. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD PERFORMED THE REQUIRED SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE ON THIS VEHICLE. HOWEVER, SINCE PURCHASING THIS VEHICLE NEW IN 2011 AND EXPERIENCING MULTIPLE RECALLS AND A AIR BAG SAFETY ISSUE AND NOW THIS, I HAVE BECOME CONCERNED ABOUT THE RELIABILITY AND SAFETY OF THIS VEHICLE. THE VEHICLE HAS ONLY 61,000 MILES ON IT AND SHOULD NOT BE EXPERIENCING THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM. I BELIEVE GMC CORPORATION SHOULD MAKE A CONCERTED EFFORT TO RECALL ANY OF THEIR VEHICLES WITH THIS PROBLEM.

I WAS DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY AT 60 MPH AND ALL OF A SUDDEN LOST POWER. THE REDUCED POWER AND CHECK STABILITRAK MESSAGES APPEARED ON THE SCREEN. I PULLED OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND TURNED THE ENGINE OFF. I IMMEDIATELY TRIED STARTING THE VEHICLE AGAIN AND IT DID, SO WENT ON MY WAY. GOT DOWN THE ROAD ABOUT THREE MILES AND THE SAME THING, SO PULLED TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND TURNED THE ENGINE OFF. I TRIED TO START THE VEHICLE, BUT THERE WAS NO RESPONSE, EVERYTHING WAS DEAD. I WAITED SEVERAL MINUTES AND TRIED AGAIN AND IT STARTED. I CONTINUED ON MY WAY AND DIDN'T HAVE ANYMORE TROUBLE GETTING TO MY DESTINATION. A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER, THE SAME THING HAPPENED EXCEPT WHEN I TRIED TO TURN THE VEHICLE OFF, IT CONTINUED TO RUN VERY ROUGHLY AND THEN FINALLY SHUT OFF. IT DID START AGAIN AND HAD THE ENGINE LIGHT ON. I'VE HAD THE VEHICLE TO THE LOCAL GMC DEALER WHEN THE FIRST INCIDENT HAPPENED, HOWEVER WHEN THEY TRIED TO READ THE CODES, THERE WERE NO CODES TO READ EVEN THOUGH THE ENGINE LIGHT WAS ON. I WAS TOLD EVERYTHING CHECKED OUT FINE. I WAS DOWN THE TO DEALER AGAIN TODAY WITH THE ENGINE LIGHT ON AGAIN, BUT BEFORE THEY COULD CHECK IT OUT, THE ENGINE LIGHT HAD GONE OUT. TO ME THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM AS IT CAN VERY EASILY CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. SO FAR I'VE BEEN LUCKY THAT I HAVEN'T LOST THE POWER STEERING OR BRAKES.

I WAS DRIVING ON I-75 WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN MY 2011 GMC TERRAIN SLOWED DOWN TREMENDOUSLY. ALSO, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AND THE GAGE READ ENGINE POWER DECREASING, SERVICE STABILITRAK. I COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED AND IT WAS DIFFICULT FOR ME TO PULL OVER TO THE SHOULDER. GENERAL MOTORS NEED TO RECALL AND FIX THIS BEFORE SOMEONE GETS KILLED. COME ON GENERAL MOTORS. I JUST RECENTLY PAID NEARLY $5,000 FOR A NEW TRANSMISSION BECAUSE THE VEHICLE WOULDN'T MOVE WHILE IN DRIVE AND HAD THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER REPLACED. LOTS OF PROBLEMS WITH THIS VEHICLE.
