Traverse LT AWD V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,000 miles

The day after getting back from a 2300 mile family road trip, the engine seized up while attempting to park at the bank just running an errand. Had to get it towed, and the dealer had it fixed 2 days later. Guess I am lucky it didn't happen out on that trip with the family... Good thing I had the extended warranty, otherwise it would've been $1200-1300.

It was a long trip, but it was 90% cruise control, and we used re-circulate within the cabin to tax the AC less. Just a bad part that Chevy won't update since it's an older model already.

It starts/turns over a little hard still. I'm going to call the dealer back and ask them to be fully sure they've fixed everything.

1st and last Chevy, this one already had a couple AC components replaced and covered under the manufacturer's warranty in 2019.

Traverse LS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,000 miles

I traded my 2011 Toyota Camry with 98K miles on it for this 2015 Chevrolet Traverse thinking I was getting a lower mileage vehicle with more reliability. I SHOULD have stuck with TOYOTA I never had any problems with my Toyota. Now I have a Chevy with less than 50K miles that is of course 8K miles out of standard warranty with an issue that is not covered under drive train warranty. It is costing me nearly $700 and leaving me stranded with 2 kids in the car and no vehicle to drive for 4 days! Next time you bet I'll buy another Toyota.

Traverse LT V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,000 miles

Have had this car for only about 4 months and the AC Compressor that has never given me any issues locked up. I reversed out of my drive way and only made it one house away before the compressor locked up and stalled my engine. I had to have it towed to my local dealer. Granted they were able to get it covered for me by Manf. warranty I dont think this is something that would happen this soon....

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,000 miles

Why after only 2 years and 60k is the AC compressor melted? It's a family SUV it's not like we are redlining the car to the store to buy groceries! I've called twice now to Chevrolet and it has gotten me no where and that's also regarding a recall item we have with the air bag sensor too!

People say to buy American but if this is the quality our car manufacturers are producing, no thanks!
