Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

    I don't think the prior person will answer since the post was over 2 years old but with the reduced power message forget about the stabilitrak thing. The reduced power should set a code, get it scanned for that and correct whatever it calls for.

    I have a 2013 traverse with same issue....50k on it.  I bought it in Feb, had it for 2 weeks, it would ding 4x's then give me traction control off, stab requires servicing, then reduces power.  One dealership wanted to swap parts cost me $300 for diagnosis and 2 relays.  Did NOT fix it.  Long story short, I took it to another dealership that thought it was a wiring  Mechanic actually did some trouble shooting and found loose wire harness.  Took the fuse box off, found wire harness was not bolted to bottom of box....bolt was finger loose causing a bad connection....also had a bent pin.  I have had the car back a full week and no issues.  Before I would drive about 20 miles and I would have the above issues.
