POWER TRAIN

10/30/2016 - MOGADORE, OH
WHILE DRIVING OUR 2009 CHEVROLET TRAVERSE, LT, BACK FROM VACATION, WE EXPERIENCED A SUDDEN HIGH RPM RATE WHILE NOTICING A DECREASE IN ACCELERATION. TOOK VEHICLE TO A TRANSMISSION REPAIR CENTER AND WAS TOLD IT IS A COMMON ISSUE WITH THE GM MODELS SIMILAR TO THE TRAVERSE. THE MANUFACTURER RECOGNIZES THE ISSUE, AS IT RELATES TO THEIR SERVICE BULLETIN SB-07-30-012A. HAD TO HAVE THE TRANSMISSION WAVE PLATE REPLACED, AS WELL AS SOME OTHER INTERNAL PARTS. TOTAL COST OF $3500. VEHICLE HAS 117,000 MILES. WILL BE CONTACTING GMAC TO DISCUSS THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF THIS ISSUE WHILE NOT OFFERING A SOLUTION FROM A MANUFACTURER'S STANDPOINT. I FEEL THIS COULD BE CLASSIFIED AS A SAFETY ISSUE AND AS SUCH SHOULD BE COVERED BY THE MANUFACTURER, REGARDLESS OF YEAR OF VEHICLE.

ENGINE

10/27/2016 - RICHLAND, MS
WELL MY WIFE WAS DRIVING THE CAR ON FREEWAY WITH OUR KIDS AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AND THEN THE VEHICLE POWERED DOWN, WE FELT LIKE IT WAS TIMING CHAIN AND TURNS OUT IT WAS.. GENERAL MOTORS FIXED TIMING CHAIN PROBLEM BUT NOW THE DEALERSHIP SAYS ALL THREE CATALYTIC CONVERTERS ARE BAD BECAUSE OF GAS SEEPING IN BECAUSE OF THE TIMING ISSUE AND TO FIX THE CONVERTERS IT WILL COST UPWARDS OF 2500 DOLLARS... SO IF SOMEONE COULD PLEASE ADVISE OF ANY KNOWN RECALLS PLEASE... ALSO WE JUST BOUGHT THE TRUCK TWO WEEKS AGO AND WITH SEVEN KIDS DON'T HAVE THE CASH LAYING AROUND FOR SUCH A EXPENSIVE REPAIR THAT WE FEEL SHOULD BE COVERED IF CAUSED BY THE TIMING ISSUE IN THE FIRST PLACE.

STEERING

9/13/2016 - EDINBURG, TX
POWER STEERING COMPLETELY FAILS WHEN MAKING LOW SPEED TURNS (EX. INTO A PARKING SPACE, AT AN INTERSECTION...ETC.). STEERING GETS VERY STIFF THAT AT TIMES I CANNOT COMPLETE THE TURN. HAVE TO STOP AND REVERSE TO STRAIGHTEN OUT. BEEN VERY CLOSE TO HITTING VEHICLES BECAUSE OF IT. FROM WHAT I AM RESEARCHING, I UNDERSTAND THIS IS A WIDESPREAD PROBLEM WITH THESE VEHICLES. WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND IS WHY THERE HASN'T BEEN A RECALL TO FIX IT. I GUESS THE INDUSTRY DOESN'T SEE IT AS BIG ISSUE SINCE THEY AREN'T THE ONES DRIVING THESE CARS AND PUTTING THEIR OWN LIVES, FAMILY'S LIVES AND OTHERS ON THE ROAD AT RISK. IT'S EASY FOR THEM TO SAY "FIX IT ON YOUR OWN" OR "JUST BUY ANOTHER CAR". BUT FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T AND DEPEND ON THEIR VEHICLE DAY IN AND DAY OUT, IT'S A BIG PROBLEM. I WOULD UNDERSTAND IF IT WAS NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR OR IF NO ONE ELSE WAS HAVING THESE PROBLEMS, BUT ITS NOT. IT'S A BIG PROBLEM ALL OVER THE U.S. FIX IT PLEASE !!!
