Dashboard pad stuffing came apart from windshield. Repaired and now this is third time it's replaced. I was not aware that extended warrenty doesn't pay for it. The first repair was warrenty. Repair defective 3rd time. Everytime it comes out they have to charge to remove dash board and replace. Safety hazard windshield loosen, can crack, leak, annoying rattle. Contact GMC to put recall safety in. Software update if you call dealer no recall was issued as required. Failed again. Pandemic keeps people from driving so didn't know problem and now warrenty up.. 10,000 miles on 2018. Jan 2021 3 years. Repaired third time now. Cost of approx $500. Dealer stated recall on software and GMC issued it. Just said no recall issued aware of. This is dangerous to driver. Windshield loosen, can crack, shatter easier on impact, annoying rattle, and cost for each repaired new dashboard required. $395 and tax and labor. Total 500.00.

This is not to report an incident but more of a concern with the roof structure of my 2018 Chevrolet Traverse premium. On multiple occasions while washing the roof of my SUV I noticed the sheet metal flexing across the center midline of the roof from the liftgate all the way to the windshield. Luckily, I do not have a sunroof on my vehicle. The amount of pressure I exert while scrubbing the roof of the car is less that 20 lbs per square inch. I tried capturing this on camera but the images keep coming up blurry.

Over two dozen areas on the powder coated sub frame and suspension components have rusty weld beads with flaking paint. I took the vehicle in for inspection and filed a claim with Chevrolet. Chevrolet said the rust is "operating as designed" and no repair would be completed. The areas are increasing to rust and I believe this may lead to a catastrophic failure of the frame and steering components.

Main sunroof (the one that tilts and opens) shattered. It was closed at the time, all windows were closed, driving straight down a good, smooth highway at 74 mph, in good weather
