WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY AT 55MPH MY VEHICLE SEEMED TO SUDDENLY DRIVE ROUGH AND I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO LOSE CONTROL OR A BLOWN TIRE OR SOMETHING. I LOST POWER AND MY VEHICLE BEGAN TO SLOW DOWN ON ITS OWN. THINGS BEGAN TO LIGHT UP ON MY DASH ABOUT THE STABILITRAK SYSTEM NEEDING SERVICING. THIS WAS TERRIFYING SINCE CARS WERE FLYING BY ME AND I WAS IN THE MIDDLE LANE. THIS HAS HAPPENED MORE THAN ONCE EVEN ON LOCAL ROADS AT SLOWER SPEEDS SUCH AS 30MPH. WHY IS THERE NO RECALL FOR THIS? THERE ARE SO MANY COMPLAINTS AND FAMILIES ARE IN THESE VEHICLES INCLUDING MINE. I AM ALSO GETTING A CHECK ENGINE CODE FOR TIMING. MY VEHICLE IS JUST AT 70K MILES AND I USE IT AS A DAILY DRIVER TO/FROM WORK AND PRIMARILY JUST IN MY TOWN. FURTHEST I DRIVE IS 20 MINUTES DOWN THE HIGHWAY TO A RELATIVE AND BACK. PLEASE FIX THIS WITH A RECALL! IT IS EXTREMELY UNSAFE! THE RECALL SHOULDN'T BE ISSUED ONCE THERE IS A TRAGIC DEATH, IT SHOULD BE ISSUED BEFORE!! I'VE ALREADY HAD TO DEAL WITH MY WIPE BLADES COMING OFF AND HITTING EACH OTHER BECAUSE THE BOLTS CAME LOOSE WHILE I WAS DRIVING HOME IN HEAVY RAIN AND THERE WAS A RECALL FOR THAT! THIS STABILITRAK AND TIMING RECALL NEEDS TO HAPPEN.

THIS HAS HAPPENED TWICE ONCE WITH OUR KIDS IN THE CAR ON THE WAY HOME FROM THE AIRPORT AND ONCE TO MY WIFE ON HER WAY HOME FROM WORK. BOTH ON THE FREEWAY AT 65+ MPH. DRIVING FINE THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN VIOLENT SHAKING, AND LOSS OF POWER. CANNOT STEER AT 65 MPH THAT IS LITERALLY DEADLY. SERVICE STABILITRAK LIGHT COMES ON, TRACTION CONTROL OFF LIGHT COMES ON, AND REDUCED ENGINE POWER LIGHT COMES ON. EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND HAD A 6,4,AND 2 YEAR OLD IN THE VEHICLE. THE FACT THAT THIS HASN+T BEEN ADDRESSED AS A RECALL IS ABSOLUTELY ABSURD. I WENT THROUGH 16 PAGES OF COMPLAINTS ON A CHEVROLET FORUM ABOUT THIS ISSUE. HOW MANY DOES IT TAKE BEFORE THE PROBLEM IS ADDRESSED? DOES SOMEONE NEED TO DIE? FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND IT MAY NOT BE WORTH TAKING INTO A MECHANIC AS THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO NAIL DOWN THE ISSUE AND I DON+T HAVE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO POUR INTO A PROBLEM THAT DOESNT HAVE A SURE CURE. ABAOLUTELY RIDICULOUS TO BE DOING FREEWAY SPEEDS AND THEN NOT BE ABLE TO STEER. DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.

I WAS DRIVING MY TRAVERSE ON AN ON RAMP TO THE HIGHWAY WHEN THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. THE DASH SAID SERVICE STABILITRAC, ENGINE POWER REDUCED... JUST AS I WAS ABOUT TO MERGE INTO TRAFFIC. I LOST ACCELERATION AND HAD TO TAKE THE SHOULDER OF THE HIGHWAY TO AVOID GETTING RUN OVER BY A SEMI THAT WAS AT HIGHWAY SPEED! I CAN+T BELIEVE THERE ISN+T A RECALL OR SOMETHING FOR THIS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS ISSUE!!
