 Description of the problemActive handling system malfunction - on three separate occasions during a recent road trip, i experienced a momentary loss of directional control while driving my vehicle at highway speeds. On each occasion, i was fortunate to quickly regain control of the vehicle after it involuntarily veered to the left and crossed into the adjacent lane of travel. Shortly thereafter, a dash board message appeared : "service active handling". Upon arrival at my destination, i had my vehicle serviced at an out of town cheverolet dealer. After consulting with general motors, the dealer examined the vehicle but was unable to provide a "fix" for the problem. I asked the dealer if they were aware of any similar problems with other corvettes - they responded - "no". Acceleration disruption issue - this has been a problem since day one and continuess through today. The probloem is most apparent when i attempt to merge into traffic upon entering a freeway. "excessive heat" - as with the acceleration issue , this problem has existed since buying my vehicle in august of 2000. I plan to have warranty service with respect to the acceleration and heat issues sometime in the very near future.*ak
