DRIVING 2009 CHEVY TRAVERSE FRONT WHEEL DRIVE AND NOTICED THAT THE TRANSMISSION WAS NOT SHIFTING CORRECTLY. WHILE TAKING OFF FROM A STOP THE CAR MOVED SLOWLY THE SHIFTED HARD INTO GEAR CAUSING THE CAR TO LURCH FORWARD VIOLENTLY. I ALMOST HIT ANOTHER CAR IN FROM OF ME AND WAS ALMOST REAR ENDED BY THE CAR BEHIND ME WHEN I SLAMMED ON THE BRAKE. THE PROBLEM IS THE 3 5 R WAVEPLATE, WHICH IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS VEHICLE AND ALL GM LAMBDA PLATFORM VEHICLES. GOT NO HELP FROM THE DEALERSHIP OR GM IN FIXING THE VEHICLE.WILL COST $2500 TO $3500 TO REPAIR.

STEERING

3/10/2015 - LOUISVILLE, KY
MY POWER STEERING PUMP FAILED AND THE RACK AND PINION SYSTEM IS LEAKING ON MY 2009 CHEVY TRAVERSE. AFTER SOME RESEARCH THIS IS A VERY COMMON ISSUE THE GM IS NOT ADDRESSING PROPERLY. THEY WILL REPLACE THE PUMP BUT THE COST OF REPLACING THE RACK AND PINION WILL NOT BE COVERED. THERE HAVE BEEN NO RECALLS AND THIS ISSUE. THIS CAN OCCUR WHILE DRIVING AND COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT AND EVEN DEATH. GM NEEDS TO ADDRESS THIS SITUATION BEFORE THAT HAPPENS.
