problem #3

Engine power reduced, service stabilitrak light while getting off highway, car slowed down significantly. I cant imagine what may have happened had I still been on the highway. This is extremely concerning. Apparently this is a know issue with Chevy & GM cars. I have seen many forums and it seems nothing resolves this issue. There should be a recall on all Chevrolet & GM cars.

Camaro 8-cyl

  • 26,000 miles
On 9/13/2014, my wife drove my 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL11 to her dads, when she left she pulled out of his drive way and stopped at stop sign, she took off in first gear she said when she shifted the car into second gear the car just took off she said it acted like something just took over, like a cruise control, except no matter what she did including hitting the brake the continued to increase in speed, keep in mind this car has a 6 speed standard transmission, meaning she had one foot on throttle and one foot on clutch when this happened unlike automatic where you could have hit gas instead of brake, my wife has never had an accident or a speeding ticket, I believe something happened, with all this being said 17 days later she is in icu with 2 broken bones in her back and a piece of broken bone lodged next to her spine, this needs to be addressed next time it could be a hole family. The car has been considered total loss, but I have not released the car to insurance company at this time.
