The traction control feature is unsafe. When it comes on it causes the wheels to lock, prevents braking, and proper steering. This always happens in the rain. It has in the snow and even when it is dry. Once pulling into a parking space the wheels locked causing me to slide into the vehicle parked in front of me. When it happened in the snow it caused me to lose control and slide across the entire intersection luckily no other vehicles were present. And yes, I know how to drive in the snow. I was only going about 15 mph and lightly tapped the breaks at the stop sign. When I remember to turn the button off after starting the vehicle it does not happen but sometimes it is hard to remember since it is automatically activated when the car is started. The times this has occurred I was either turning on coming to a stop and speed does not seem to make a difference. It has happened on a city streets, freeways, parking lots, neighborhood stop signs, and driveways. This has been randomly happening the entire 5 years I have owned the car.

I purchase mic 73391 defender tires and they are cracking on the sides, I was told they could get a blow out. Is there a recall on this tires. I purchased them Jan 2013 at tire choice auto car care. I also would like to know about the steering knuckle on my 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix.

ABS, traction control, variable steering effort warnings came on all at once. Turned out to be a bad wheel hub/bearing. Have replaced two wheel hubs, one at 40K miles and the other at 61K miles. The car is a Grand Prix gtp, for the money paid for the vehicle, it should have held up better.
