THE PAINT ON THE HOOD IS BUBBLED. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALERSHIP 3 YEARS AGO AND THEY SAID THEY WOULD PAY HALF OF THE COST TO REPAINT. I DID NOT HAVE IT DONE. I HAVE RECENTLY FOUND OUT IT IS A PROBLEM FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE WITH THAT YEAR TRAVERSE.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

10/18/2017 - MINNETONKA, MN
I WAS ON MY WAY HOME FROM DINNER WHEN THE ENGINE STARTED REVVING ON IT'S OWN AND THE CAR BEGAN JERKING. I PULLED TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND THE ENGINE KILLED. I RESTARTED THE VEHICLE AND NOTED THAT THE BATTERY WAS SUPPLING ENOUGH POWER AND THE TEMPERATURE GAGE WAS NORMAL. AT THIS TIME, THE LIGHTS STARTED TO FLICKER, THE RPMS WERE GOING UP AND DOWN FAIRLY QUICKLY AND THE WINDOWS AND LOCKS WERE CLICKING. I WAS ABLE TO GET THE VEHICLE HOME (5 MILES), BUT THE PROBLEMS PERSISTED THE ENTIRE DRIVE. THE SECOND I WOULD LET ME FOOT OFF THE GAS PEDAL, THE ENGINE WOULD KILL. I TOOK IT TO THE MECHANIC AND HE SAID WHEN HE HOOKED IT UP TO THE MACHINE TO SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS, THERE WAS SO MUCH WRONG HE COULDN'T ACTUALLY TELL WHAT WAS CAUSING WHAT. THE COMPUTER AND ENGINE BOTH WERE RECOMMENDED TO BE REPLACED. I LET HIM KNOW AS WELL IT HAD BECOME MORE DIFFICULT IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS TO TURN THE WHEEL WHEN GOING AT A SLOW SPEED AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO PARK. HE STATED IT IS A KNOWN ISSUE WITH THIS MAKE, MODEL AND YEAR. THE STEERING, THE COMPUTER AND THE ENGINE HE HAS SEEN MULTIPLE CUSTOMERS HAVE PROBLEMS WITH.
