2006 Hummer H3 Owner Comments

I drive a 2006 Hummer H3. In Sept. 08, I was traveling about 40 mph down a road when all of the sudden my H3 locked up, slid sideways, and almost flipped. I did not flip, and was able to get to a side street safely. The control panel read ABS traction control failure. I had the H3 towed to the Hummer dealership in georgetown Texas. They said they had never heard of this type of problem before, but would check it out. After 2 days without my truck, they told me it was a sensor that failed and they replaced it. Then in October 08, the same thing happened again. Traveling around 50 mph I felt it start so I let off the gas, and it froze up and almost flipped again. Same error code on the control panel. I drove 25 mph on a freewayto get it to the dealership in georgetown. They told me this time, it was a different sensor. So I had to pay for a rental car, while they fixed the other sensor. I kept asking them to test all sensors so this does not happen again. Plus, shouldn't a car have some type of warning system before almost flipping? they said it was fixed. Nov. 08, we brought the car in for noises and asked them to check the brakes and the ABS system. They said the ABS was fine. This morning, I was driving home from the gym, and the car froze on my again, almost flipping. Same error code. The service reps. And managers do not have answers for me. They say I can bring it in again to get it fixed, but to me the problem has not been fixed yet. I am in fear for my life, my loved ones life, and my clients lives. This is a serious safety problem. I wish I could sell the car, but I don't feel right doing that, in fear that it may flip on the new owner. I want Hummer to buy the car back. I do not feel safe. Concerned consumer, daniel demitri
