Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2009 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 182010


  • 5,500 miles


I am an owner of a 2009 Corvette Z06 which repeatedly displays the following messages: "service traction control" and "service active handling." My VIN is: [xxx] while I have not detected any operational interventions myself, other owners have reported sudden erratic braking causing the vehicle to change direction. Obviously, this is a very serious safety issue. I appreciate your efforts to ensure that GM rectifies this defect before further damage occurs. My understanding is that the recall involving this issue (NHTSA no: 10V172000) is limited to my 2005 and 2006. At a minimum, and immediately, this recall should be extended through my 2009 to include defective vehicles like mine.
