I am curious if someone can tell me if there is a solution to a long term issue with my car...
I have a 2003 Saturn Vue 2 wheel drive, with a 4 cylinder and a CVT transmission.
The issue is that the computer has always done silly things that I want it to stop doing.
When I accelerate out of a parking lot while turning right is when it happens most often, but if I accelerate too hard and the traction is lost (i.e. gravel/snow cause the wheel to spin) the computer apparently decides that I am too stupid to drive, and cuts off all acceleration for a second or two.
I would prefer that the computer allow me to back off of the accelerator a bit, rather than coasting into traffic like a target for oncoming cars.
Am I correct that this is a computer issue?
I know there are chip replacements for performance available for some cars, but I don't care about that, I prefer economy, but is there a chip replacement to let me control the car?
Or is this something besides the computer?
