  • 5,500 miles
I am an owner of a 2009 Corvette Z06 which repeatedly displays the following messages: "service traction control" and "service active handling." My VIN is: [xxx] while I have not detected any operational interventions myself, other owners have reported sudden erratic braking causing the vehicle to change direction. Obviously, this is a very serious safety issue. I appreciate your efforts to ensure that GM rectifies this defect before further damage occurs. My understanding is that the recall involving this issue (NHTSA no: 10V172000) is limited to my 2005 and 2006. At a minimum, and immediately, this recall should be extended through my 2009 to include defective vehicles like mine.
