After car purchase, on multiple occasions while turning right at very slow speeds the steering wheel would almost lock-up and the brakes would apply and kind of pump themselves and the the service "traction control system " light would come on.once during a rt. Turn on a green arrow it happened and the car behind me almost hit me because the car almost stopped during the turn.I had the same problem with an 05 Corvette only not as bad. The problem has happened 5 or 6 times since I bought the car, in varying degrees. I bought the car used as is or I would have returned it to the dealer since I'm sure they knew about the problem. I took it and had the car fixed. It cost me $371. The repair shop found theabs & traction control sensor and steering angle sensor not working right and replaced them. Only 30000 miles !!

The harmonic damper on 2006 Corvette with LS2 engine failed resulting in power steering drive belt coming off pulley causing loss of power steering. The high effort required to steer vehicle almost resulted in crash. This harmonic damper issue is documented in numerous internet forums and is believed to be a widespread issue that should be recalled and corrected by the manufacturer.
