The biggest problem is that mechanics don't know how to fix this problem. Traction control needs servicing with causes you to lose acceleration on the freeway. Then sometimes stabilitrac also goes off. Now the vehicle engine keeps running when turned off. The air conditioning sometimes randomly won't work at all, and last the tire servicing system now won't sync.

I come to a stop then my SUV starts to shake then turns off as I am at a light or about to turn at a stop. When I push an the gas pedal the whole SUV shakes and sometimes the check engine light turns on right before the whole car just turn off when I come to a stop. I've had all 4 CO2 sensors changed. Everything the dealership has told me to fix I have paid to have done on my car. And yet my problem is the same thing for the past 3 years. I couldn't return it because I waited to long after my warranty. Now I am told to keep paying for services I have already paid to have done. Even though it happens to be the same thing the system is showing up on the computer. I have a lemon on my hands and need help figuring out what can be done to fix this.

When stopped at a red light, my car's oil pressure low light came on. I got to a place where I could pull off the road and park. I turned the car off and had it towed to my mechanic. The car was well maintained with about 65,000 miles. The engine is done and needs to be replaced. The cause of the problem is unknown.

A week after the purchase, the car started to stall while driving and the ac went out. The dealer replaced the air compressor. About a few weeks later, the vehicle stopped wouldn't start. I took it back to the dealer and they claimed to have taken it to another repair shop and they deemed it an electrical issue. They claimed to have fixed it. I got the vehicle back and the very next day it started to smoke while driving and the ac went out again.

Traverse 6-cyl

  • 66,500 miles
I was driving on the interstate at 60 miles per hour. The car jarred forward, made a popping sound and lost power and the engine speed dropped. I got off the interstate the car shut down and would not go. The stability trac came on the dash as well as the check engine light. I turned the car off for about 15 seconds and the car started and I drove home. I looked this up on youtube and found out the car does not keep a memory of the code the car throws when this happen. After the car sits all night it "resets" itself and the engine light goes off. This is the third time this has happened and I was lucky it did not stall in the middle of the interstate. This is a huge safe issue I haul my child and granddaughter in this vehicle. This is a serious safety issue and Chevy knows about it. Get it fixed, do a recall.

  • 80,000 miles
While driving, my reverse camera came on, service engine light, traction control turned off, alerts for parking assist off, service traction control, service stabilitrax. Loss engine power and was not able to accelerate over 10mph while flooring the gas. This happened on a low traffic road thankfully or one of my children could have died in an accident. The alerts began while driving down a hill, the engine loss was noted when I turned. Apparently there are pages and pages of forums regarding this exact issue with the Traverse. How is there not a recall" how many people must die in accidents caused by engine power loss before you do anything"!

Car engine says check engine turn off oil pressure is low. It also reads sensor P011. While driving on the freeway. Look like Chevy engines are not built to last poor engine. 2011 Chevy Tahoe have the exact same thing... lots of mechanic don't want to mess with these engines because it's designs are bad and needs to be recalled. Bad make with Chevy company period...

  • 34,500 miles
Vehicle will suddenly decelerate, with check engine light coming on and notifications that traction control is off, and stabilitrak is off. This has happened twice once while driving (straight on 25mph road) once-most recent- while idling at a stop light. After first time, had vehicle serviced and had a purge valve replaced per computer error code. Vehicle is awaiting service again. To be able to drive, shut off is required (two times) but engine light stays on. Vehicle has less than 36,000 miles. Weather was fair both days-overcast, but roads were dry. Vehicle has been subject to a very wet summer, previously a winter with a lot of salt and anti-skid treatments. Vehicle does not travel much other than to my child's school and basic errands. Only in my possession 2 years as of July.

Traverse 6-cyl

  • 62,000 miles
The contact owns a 2015 Chevrolet Traverse. While driving 40 mph, the engine seized and the traction control and check engine indicators illuminated. The vehicle was taken to a dealer (lemond's Chevrolet Buick & Cadillac, 412 E main St, fairfield il 62837, 618-842-2147) where it was diagnosed, but a failure could not be located. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 62,000. * consumer stated the vehicle will suddenly stop, lock up and shuts down, all power is locked. Very scary and not safe. Once it stops it will restart after awhile. Unable to travel in this vehicle for fear of my life or others. When this happens passengers & driver need to push it to a safe spot in order to restart the vehicle. Updated 11/1/18

As I was driving my car started to stutter and the engine light came on the traction control light and something about the stabilizer needs fixed, reduced engine power. Car stopped went into limp mode. Glad I wasn't in a car accident. I have read many people are having this issue and nothing is being done. We were in a city street. My car has 48717 miles on

Jul 252018


  • 44,000 miles
While driving, the interior lights shut off and my vehicle suddenly loses power. No matter how hard I press on the gas, the vehicle does not respond. Certain service signs also appear and they are 'service stabilitrak, ' service traction control, ' 'traction control off, ' and 'park assist off.' This is dangerous as I was driving through a fairly busy street when this happened and had to physically notify the driver coming towards me to stop. Otherwise, I would have gotten T-boned! this happened twice. The first time it happened, the diagnostic code appeared, they cleared it and test drove it and it was fine. However, a month later, it did it again. Huge liability here! during both incidents, I was driving the vehicle, going straight ahead.
