Corvette 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 29,000 miles
I was driving my 2002 Chevrolet Corvette coupe about 30 mph and the right front wheel locked up. The display on the instrument cluster read "active handling". this has actually happened 4 times now. Luckily I was only moving at a steady speed at about 30-35 mph. Had I been driving down the freeway at 70 mph, I may have wrecked the car injuring or killing myself as well as possibly anyone else involved. For now I have to turn off the active handling to prevent this from happening.
