The Traverse shut down while driving and we later found out it was due to the engine seizing up. The vehicle was always properly maintained. A search of the internet, we found that this was not uncommon for 2011 & 2012 models. I spoke with Chevy who reluctantly admitted that it was an issue and that by the vin# ours was suspected to be one of the defective engines. The SUV was out of warranty, but I got GM to agree to pay half the repair costs to replace the engine with a reconditioned one. Now we are having additional issues with the AC lines - and will be listing that on another complaint.
