I WAS DRIVING 70MPH ON THE INTERSTATE (WITH MY 4 CHILDREN IN TOW) MY CEL, SERVICE STABILITRAC AND REDUCED ENGINE POWER LIGHTS CAME ON. MY SPEED WAS REDUCED TO AROUND 45MPH. I HAD TWO SEMIS BEHIND ME, THE ONE DIRECTLY BEHIND ME HAD TO GET OVER VERY QUICKLY TO AVOID REAR ENDING ME. I PUT ON MY HAZARDS AND TOOK THE NEXT EXIT APPROXIMATELY 7 MILES AHEAD. ONCE OFF THE INTERSTATE I SHUT OFF MY VEHICLE, WAITED TWO MINUTES THEN RESTARTED, LIGHTS AND MESSAGES STILL ON. I PROCEEDED TO DRIVE BUT COULD ONLY GO AROUND 45MPH WHILE MY VEHICLE WAS NOT WANTING TO GO. I PARKED IT AT WORK THEN AT LUNCH I DROVE IT ON CITY STREETS AT 35MPH. I PARKED IT AGAIN AT MY WORK. WHEN I GOT OFF I STARTED THE CAR AND STARTED DRIVING, NO LIGHTS OR MESSAGES. I PROCEEDED TO DRIVE TO THE INTERSTATE ON MY WAY HOME. WHEN MY VEHICLE HIT 60MPH THE SAME THING HAPPENED, LUCKILY NO VEHICLES BEHIND ME. I GOT OFF THE INTERSTATE AND DRIVE 45MPH THE REST OF THE WAY HOME. MY VEHICLE WAS PARKED FOR A FEW DAYS. AFTER STARTING AGAIN THE SAME LIGHTS AND MESSAGES APPEARED. I CONTACTED MY DEALER AND WAS TOLD MY VEHICLE WAS NOT PART OF THE SPECIAL COVERAGE FOR THIS EXACT ISSUE. I CONTACTED CHEVY CUSTOMER SERVICE AND WAS TOLD MY VIN/YEAR WAS NOT PART OF THE ISSUE AND THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO KNOWING THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE AND WAS ONE OF THE SCARIEST MOMENTS OF MY LIFE.
