THE 2009 CHEVROLET TRAVERSE IS A HAZARD TO DRIVE! THIS IS THE 3RD MAJOR BREAK DOWN IN THE LAST 4 YEARS AND IS ALSO CURRENTLY UNDER RECALL FOR BAD AIRBAGS AND SEATBELTS, WHEREAS SHOULD THERE BE AN ACCIDENT, THE ACTUAL DEPLOYMENT OF SAID BAGS WOULD "INJURE THE OCCUPANT" (RECALL WORDS). IN 2012 THE ENTIRE POWER STEERING SYSTEM FAILED. LATER RECALLED AND GOOD THING I WAS IN THEY DRIVEWAY AND NOT THE INTERSTATE! 2013 THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER SYSTEM FAILED TO A TUNE OF $2,020.84 - TOTALLY OUT OF POCKET EXPENSE, AND ONCE AGAIN, THE ENGINE COULD HAVE CAUGHT FIRE AND CAUSED INJURY. 2015 JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO, THE TRANSMISSION FAILS COMPLETELY AND IS ESTIMATED AT $3,896.36 AT JUST OVER 100,000 MILES, LESS THAN 5 YEARS OLD. ALL CHEVROLET TRAVERSES ARE POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS AND SHOULD BE TOTALLY RECALLED. THANK YOU

1/13/2015 - MARTINSVILLE, IN
CHEVY TRAVERSE HAS HAD A FUNNY NOISE WHEN MAKING SHARP TURNS SINCE PURCHASE. TOOK BACK TO DEALER AND THEY SAID POWER STEERING FLUID LOW. THIS HAS HAPPENED FOR 5 YEARS. FINALLY WHEN OUT OF MANUFACTURER WARRANTY I AM TOLD IT NEEDS NEW POWER STEERING PUMP. I FOUND RECALL TO GET IT PAID FOR, BUT POWER STEERING FLUID STILL LEAKING. THEY NOW SAY I NEED NEW RACK AND PINION ASSEMBLY. COST OF AT LEAST $1200 FOR SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN A PROBLEM SINCE I HAVE OWNED THE VEHICLE. WHY WILL CHEVROLET FIX PART OF THE PROBLEM, BUT NOT ALL OF IT. WHAT HAPPENS IF I WAIT TO FIX AND POWER STEERING GOES OUT AND SOMEONE GETS HURT? SOUNDS LIKE A QUICK LAWSUIT FOR CHEVROLET. I THINK ITS TIME TO PAY FOR YOUR MISTAKE!!!!
