Got the messages on DIC.
Service stabilitrak, service traction control and abs alarm all at same time.

Turns out that a bolt had loosened on one of the abs sensors and sensor had slipped back from hub.
This causes the traction control to think wheels are turning at different speeds.
when the sensor slips far enough it applies brakes to one side in a pulsing motion, feels like the car is jerking.

Cost $170 for the dealer to put in a new bolt.

Probably could have spent a few minutes and tightened the bolt or change it myself if I had looked.

Point is check the abs sensor position before bringing to dealer. very easy to fix if that is cause.
