Service lights came on - stabilitrak service needed. Engine light came on. Car went into reduced power mode. Engine started to "sputter". took car in for service at GM dealer. They need to replace the throttle body and sensor. This problem is reported all over the internet with GM trucks and SUV's. obviously there is a manufacturers defect. GM is not covering the problem or fixing it at their cost. $600 to fix.
