I was driving the Chevy Traverse on a 1 way street at about 35 mph..when suddenly without warning the car lerched to the left..driver had 0 control over the steering of the vehicle...the car drove us head on into an oak tree..the only reason we were not killed is that the airbags deployed or I would not be typing this now...while researching this I found many other Traverses that were also built in Virginia and had the same problem..I also know GM was class actioned sued for this issue in 2012...need to be sued again...

I experienced a life threatening vehicle malfunction with my brand new 2014 Chevy Traverse. I was driving down the road and I felt my steering wheel stop working. If I turned to the left or the right it would continue going straight. This happened twice at low speeds on a paved street in my neighborhood. I have the documentation of how I tried to resolve this matter with GM/Chevy.

I was driving in slow traffic on the expressway and the car shut off. I was able to restart it. This is a new vehicle, with low mileage.

While accelerating to 40 mph, the vehicle suddenly started vibrating followed by stability control and traction error messages, the check engine light on, a burning smell due to random braking as part of the control and an engine down power. This incident is similar to many others reported over a period of years and is unacceptable from a safety stand point when my entire family is within the vehicle. I will not accept a ridiculous explanation from the dealer. Honestly, I want another vehicle. I knew Chevy would be trouble.
