Is there a long term solution? I have seen some people describe turning traction control off, I am not interested in doing that. The product should function properly with the safety features turned on.
Dealers (as well as other users on here) are probably going to tell you to finish your break-in period (at least 1k miles with varying speed/acceleration) before you get it looked at.
