problem #8

Dec 102019

Traverse 6-cyl

  • 34,000 miles
Power steering failed on vehicle while in motion. Electric power steering module failed causing extreme difficulty getting the vehicle parked. Steering rack had to be replaced and computer re-programmed. Vehicle is back at the dealer with a similar trouble code for a follow up to the original repair. It took GM over 4 months to get the replacement part making us drive our vehicle with a faulty steering rack never once providing a loaner vehicle or buyback opportunity.

I started my car and it felt weird and made a strange noise. An error message cande on saying 'steering assist is reduced, drive with care. I drove a few blocks and the message remained on until I returned to my home. My backseat reminder alarm also does not work anymore. My car is a 2018 Chevy Traverse

Car had about 10000 miles and in two separate occasions has stalled, steering wheel had stop working, couldn't steer, car turns off when stopped at traffic lights, alrms go off and dealer just says they can only reprogram the computer, no repairs available. On a third time braking system alarms went off and dealer had to replace the braking system. Vehicle has always failed while in motion. Dealer and manufacturer will be responsible if someone gets hurt because this car does not function as it should.

I have owned this truck for less than 4 months, bought it brand new off the show room floor. I was driving today to pick up lunch on a city street when an error message appeared saying caution, power steering and suddenly it was impossible to steer the vehicle. I had to carefully drive and pull over to the side of the road.

Keep getting error message: "assisted steering is limited. Please drive carefully". the car was in motion on a city street truing turns. When error code was displayed. Car only has 552 miles. This could be a potential steering issues for the 2018 models.
