2010 Chevrolet Traverse Problems galore
I recently traded in my Traverse. Unfortunately, I had to take a loss and add part of what I owed on the next vehicle. But I was glad to do it to get out of the problems. I bought the Traverse as a used vehicle and was at first very pleased with the ride and the room. I wasn't to upset about the fuel. I bought mostly because I loved the look and the roominess. Shortly after purchase I experienced problems with the power steering loosing power at low speeds, such as turning in to parking spaces or turning corners while driving. The power steering pump eventually had to be replaced along with some other things the dealer found, because it started making a noise while backing up that sounded like I ran over a large metal object and felt like it to. What ever the dealership "fixed" didn't fix that problem. It also had intermittent problems with the stabilitrack system and loosing power. I lost power in the first ice storm of this season while driving home from Kansas City through some horrible ice and snow. BAD timing! NO TRACTION on slippery dangerous ice AND no power for much of the 2 days it took to get home, some of the time was due to the loss of power and traction. It also did the same on another trip with loss of power all the way. Thought I was going to need a tow. The dealership could not find out the problem and blamed it on the throttle body and wanted to replace it at MY expense. I did not, thinking the two had nothing in common and since it wasn't having the issue at the time. The NEXT thing was my transmission started to slip and could not get into gear. LAST STRAW. I RAN to the nearest Subaru dealer and traded it. So far... very pleased with the Subaru. I am NEVER buying another Chevy! This is meant to be a warning to those who are thinking about buying a Traverse. ADVICE....DON'T!
