VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

10/22/2018 - HAMDEN, CT
WHILE DRIVING ON A ON A BUSY STREET VEHICLE- APPROX 30MPH - UNEXPECTEDLY AND WITHOUT WARNING THIS VEHICLE SUDDENLY DECELERATED / DOWNSHIFTED TO A CRAWL. WE NEARLY LOST CONTROL OF THE CAR AND NARROWLY AVOIDED SEVERAL CLOSE CALLS OF PEOPLE BEHIND US. THANKFULLY WE WERE NOT ON THE HIGHWAY AS OTHERS HAVE DESCRIBED. ALSO, DOOR LOCKS BEGAN LOCKING AND UNLOCKING ON THEIR OWN. ONCE WE GOT TO A SAFE SPOT MESSAGES ON THE DISPLAY BEGAN FLASHING, SERVICE STABILTRAK; SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL; PARK ASSIST OFF; TRACTION CONTROL ON; TRACTION CONTROL OFF. TOWED THIS CAR TO THE DEALER FOR AN EXORCISM SINCE IT WAS NO LONGER DRIVEABLE. FIRST THING THEY DID WAS REPLACE THE BATTERY. AS THEY TELL IT A BAD / FUNKY BATTERY MIGHT CAUSE BAD THINGS TO THE ELECTRONIC TRANSMISSION MODULE. $400 LATER ISSUES PERSIST. NOW I AM TOLD I NEED TO REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION OUTRIGHT - $5500. THIS JUST CAN'T BE RIGHT. THIS IS BARELY 6 YEAR OLD VEHICLE WITH JUST OVER $115K. SERVICED REGULARLY / WITHOUT FAIL. SHAME ON YOU CHEVROLET. I'M BETTING NO CHEV EXEC, DEALER OR MECHANIC WOULD EVER TRUST THIS CAR FOR THEIR FAMILY VEHICLE

WHEN ACCELERATING FROM A STOP, THE CAR INITIALLY DID NOT HAVE ANY POWER AND SHOOK A LOT THEN EVENTUALLY CAUGHT UP AND DROVE NORMALLY. WHEN PUTTING THE CAR IN PARK AT HOME, IT SHOOK AGAIN AND DID NOT STOP UNTIL I TURNED IT OFF.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

10/5/2018 - CICERO, IL
I WAS DRIVING MY TRAVERSE AND THE STABILITY AND ENGINE POWER REDUCED CAME ON AND AUTOMATICALLY MY CAR CAME TO A STOP AND WOULD NOT ACCELERATE. MY SON PUSHED THE CAR TO THE SIDE OF THE STREET. I SHUT THE CAR OFF AND TURNED IT BACK ON AND EVERYTHING WAS FINE. THE MECHANIC COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG. IT KEEPS HAPPENING. I'M LUCKY SO FAR THAT I WASN'T ON THE EXPRESSWAY, I MIGHT HAVE BEEN KILLED.
