28 Feb

We did enjoy the Avalanche.

18 Nov

Three of the motor mounts came loose and 2 were completely gone.

1 Oct

After owning the car from 5/2013 to 9/2019, the transmission was done and the engine mount was broken, totaling well over 6k in repairs to have it safe.

11 Sep

Hearing from mechanics that engine and transmission problems common.

25 Jul

It has been extremely reliable, low maintenance, and has not required repairs -- until now when it requires an engine replacement that I can't get any mechanic to do except a dealer.

17 May

About 6 months after that, it started to have more engine problems.

28 Feb

Search engine lights come on for no reason, you hear rattling sounds.. what the heck.

16 Jun

My problems began with the first oil change, they found an oil leak and had to remove the engine to find it.

18 Nov

The transmission has be replaced twice now.

27 Oct

Suggestion: to avoid the transmission problems others describe, drain and refill transmission with fresh fluid at 100,000 miles.

11 Sep

Had transmission and A/C issues with my LeSabre.

28 Feb

Likewise, i know that there is something wrong with the transmission gear.

10 Sep

I have had two transmissions issues within the two years that I have owned it with me having to fork over 3K to my local dealership because GM wouldnt back the transmission.

4 Jul

Terrible reputation, poorly engineered, repaired to date water pump, power steering pump, A/C, transmission, head lights, timing chain going bad all at just under 107,000 miles ridiculous.

After checking auto reliability ratings, I found the Traverse, specifically this year, was one of the worst vehicles manufactured when rated by reliability.

16 Jun

At the beginning of this year, as I was driving home from my mom's, all the lights on my dash starting going off, I couldn't move my steering wheel, and my engine shut off ( I was in the middle of a curve on a backroad with my toddler in the car).

1 Sep

Son in law says there is more room than in my Avalanche.

16 Apr

It makes a constant and terrible clicking noise.

29 Dec

Found timing chains to be cause of noise from being stretched due to lack of lubrication.

19 Dec

but any irregularities in the road surface transmits considerably more road noise.

23 Nov

The car runs and drives very good, because it’s the base model it doesn’t have the sound deadening insulation the higher end models have so considerable road noise gets in the cabin on less than smooth roads.

3 Oct

however, insufficient engineering was devoted to lessening the road noise.

8 Jan

Second my window behind passenger side starts squeaking every time I roll the window down and up.

7 Dec

N/A

26 Jul

I have removed ours and have not noticed an increase in noise.

12 Oct

Had a noisy tick in the engine audible when outside of the vehicle, GM did the $3,000 repair for NC and provided rental and I have 49K miles on it.

12 Jul

Made a weird pop noise when warming up from exhaust area, alternator seemed too weak for the car, high pressure fuel pump, pistons and rings replaced at 38,200 miles, car sold back to dealer after this replacement at 10 miles later.

12 Aug

but my Murano has the cvt, if you read the owners manual it states that is typical to happen because it is not designed to mimic quick exceleration, the trans has to be babied always, can't punch the peddle.

5 Feb

Oil consumption, timing chain, windshield wiper control problem, transmission went before 120000 now we're onto catalytic converter problems.

10 Dec

TRANSMITION NEEDS TO BE REPLACED WITH ONLY 99,000..HOW SAD IS THAT FOR A ENGINE..ILL NEVER BY GMC CAR AGAIN..WHAT HAPPEN TO THE ENGINES YOU COULD AT LEAST 200,000..WITHOUT TRANSMITION FAILURE

24 Dec

This car was recalled for a defective wiper transmission,which I replaced myself.

24 Nov

I bought this car used January 2018 with 83k miles on it and October 2018 the transmission started acting up a bit and within the week it had completely failed.

24 Oct

Transmission still has the jumpy/hard shifting feeling that it did before the other two times the transmission went.

3 Oct

Motor, transmission, sensors, fuel pumps, throttle body, ticking, dealer cant even fix it DOES NOT EVEN DESERVE THE ONE STAR

22 Apr

The not so good: high oil consumption was repaired gratis by Chevy after 40 k miles, transmission died at 93 k miles when out of warranty.

29 Jan

I have had the timing fixed 3 times, transmission repaired, half of the sensors are out , leaking oil and now I think that the fuel injector may be going out.

26 Nov

Transmission went out around 75,000 miles, no towing was done.

16 Apr

The worst is that I do not understand who designs a SUV without air vents for the back seat.

29 Dec

that's all from taking it in for air conditioning issues!

3 Oct

Seems to be no medium where it maintains a uniform temperature.

8 Jan

First an a/c not cooling because of condenser is not working.

26 Nov

A/C condenser leaked, and had to be replaced, common problem with these vehicles.

25 Oct

Just 2 days ago my fan came on with the turn ac off engine is hot the thermostat was at cold and didn't move.

27 Sep

The dealer certified the car with aftermarket air conditioner parts ( a clear violation of the GM 172 point inspection).

7 Aug

The above repairs, along with the A/C compressor and fuel pump would total well over $5,000, I would imagine.

1 Apr

Since then the A/C does not cool and the shifter started sticking.

9 Feb

Has also been in the shop 5 times for heating and cooling issues.

29 Jan

Chevy needs to put a better warranty on the Equinox or recall those with the very common oil consumption problems.

7 Aug

Brought it back to the dealer and after 2 days of diagnosing determined it had a faulty timing chain and a cracked exhaust manifold.

20 Feb

I also understand the why problems occur and what should be accomplished to remedy the malfunction.

9 Jan

After paying almost $30,000 I’ve found several things GM failed to address.

23 Dec

The truth is you should know that GM knowingly designed and produced an engine with multiple issues.

29 Dec

and here goes more: During inspection technician detected excessive internal engine noise, found engine oil level 2 quarts low.

17 Dec

the engine is poor and has always been a wussy.

7 Dec

Well my money is gone,car is nothing that garbage .Engine problem .Stability track warning ,oil leaking ,reduce engine power and finally time change!

27 Oct

So anyway, when those passages get clogged, and they will, the first thing to go is the timing chain, if you catch it before your engine fails.

3 Oct

Motor, transmission, sensors, fuel pumps, throttle body, ticking, dealer cant even fix it DOES NOT EVEN DESERVE THE ONE STAR

11 Jul

I wrote GM and told them about the engine keeps coming on I get it repaired and 3 months later back in the shop I went online and multiple comments about the same issue.

4 Jul

Around 80,000 miles it began to have engine issues which required numerous repairs.

13 Feb

Very little about this vehicle has been good. Stay away from the Chevy vehicles with Variable Valve Timing, you will spend more time in the shop and a ton of money on oil (1qt every 900 mi.)

My wife called me today while driving my daughter back from a doctors appointment to tell me the engine was making a funny noise.

16 Jul

However it has held up pretty well other than a jerking rear end upon take off and squeaky door panels.

3 Dec

Cheap interior finishes, lots of road noise due to cheaper door seals.

8 Aug

No problems whatsoever except for a minor squeak that the dealer found and fixed right away.

6 Aug

Inadvertant rattles being common, I've had issues with the tranny, the steering geer as well as a recurring problem with the recirculation AC not working; thus me getting a fresh dose of deisel fumes in morning rush hour.

27 Jul

What actually happened with brakes: ended up finding out squeak pad was installed on the wrong side of brake pad. Oops!

12 Dec

Then after I started driving it I noticed a loud noise from the driver's window, sounds like the window is open.

2 Dec

I've been to the dealer twice since then to have them tighten up stupid and random squeaks, rattles and other noises.

9 Sep

but when we went to pick ip up, it is making the same noises in the shifting gears and they are quite loud.

12 Oct

As others have stated uses oil, cheap interior, TPS sensors out, check engine light, airbag light, backup sensors and camera don’t work, wheel bearing total failure left us stranded in a poor part of Cleveland at night in the winter.

19 Jun

Here is a list of stuff that stopped working in the last month : drivers side running light is out, the rear hatch and glass dont open when you push the

28 Sep

I drive around town only to find other Tahoe's with the same light out, I even asked another owner how many times they replaced theirs and they said it went out like almost every month so they quit replacing after 15 times.

20 Sep

Since the original review the power lift-gate stopped working, interior lights would not work when opening the passenger side doors, and the brake lights would work part time only.

10 Jan

My lights would flash on/off, the doors would lock/unlock, it would sporadically shut down in the middle of the road, and now I'm having issues with it starting.

23 Nov

Despite $2,000 in repairs the check engine light has yet to go off.

24 Apr

The radio has completely gone out and the lights flicker.

10 Apr

I have service lights on that have been on since the day I bought it and neither the dealer or GM could fix or compensate for, Fuel mileage is not only not even close to what was estimated

4 Jun

still have problems with the rear jerking when stopping at a light or stop sign and when taking off.

27 Jul

Engine light that was coming on constantly-- intake manifold was not bolted on correctly---after 8 trips to the dealer, they made this amazing find.

Major electrical failure (fuse box) causing battery to drain.

19 Jun

Googled the issue as soon as i got home and was given everything from loose wires to bad battery , could be fuel module, sensor on the brake pedal for the cruise control.

15 Aug

Battery has been replaced twice.

26 Nov

Obviously after 6 years things are going to wear and turning over the big V8 burns fuel, tires, brakes, batteries, assorted plastic

6 Apr

We replaced the battery and haven't had an issue since.

My breaks are hanging up at 40,000 miles, my battery died at 30,000 and left me sitting, the door hinges are all frozen up, and do not work worth a crap.

12 Dec

6 batteries in 2 years and GM still hasn't solved this mystery.

12 Feb

Had the dead battery issue.

17 Oct

", it was the dealership & it was 1 month out of repair warranty!!!

28 Sep

That was also supposed to covered on warranty and low and behold it wasn't.

15 Aug

Other older problems that warranty didn't cover, Seat belt casing fell off of back seat.

23 Nov

There is no warranty at this point.

28 Jul

A minor emission hose is only problem so far - and that was under warranty.

25 Oct

Just hit 36k miles with only very minor issues during warranty period.

12 Oct

Major electrical failure (fuse box) causing battery to drain.

17 Oct

Needless to say after warranty expired I researched and found GM had 3 different suppliers of clock springs and 1 was susceptable to failing (the one I had).

24 Feb

This vehicle has NEVER left me stranded or been towed due to mechanical failure.

6 Aug

At 19,000 miles a bearing failure caused my transmission to fail.

23 Oct

I have had severaly issues with the computer system since that first time and it is actually in the shop as I speak for problems with the transmission, computer failure, lock/unlock

My last vehicle was an Avalanche and I totally loved it,

18 Jun

From the noisy, clanking transmission to the locked up brakes and stabilitrac issues, it has been a nightmare.

20 Feb

the brakes are mushy and wont even stop the car, the 4 wheel drive keeps flashing " service 4 wheel drive and stability system disabled" of course the dealer says it has so many modules its hard to say which one is at fault.

20 Jun

When I came home from Iraq during R&R I had to replace the brakes.

17 Nov

Still has original brakes.

31 Jul

It had brake and wheel alignment issues, and air bag issues.

The Suburban has very poor inteior, every electronic component breaks.

27 Dec

A little noisy compared to newer vehicles.

13 Jun

The only issue I had with it involved the lightbulbs going out quickly and a noisy engine.

12 Apr

but its coming from somewhere..and a noise coming from under the dash that sounds like bolts rattling around ( only hear it when just taking off like from park or coming off a stop sign or red light.)

25 Feb

Road noise is bad because of bad fit for the windows and therefore leaks into the door panels.

20 May

There is also barely any room up front and the wind noise in the doors and windows are annoying.

19 Mar

Sometimes the wind noise coming over the mirrors is a little annoying though.

29 Apr

I had serious noise in 4wd and was told it was from dry pavement.now the front def.

21 Apr

Aside from all the mechanical problems, the wind noise around the Windows is terrible, gas mileage is less than the sticker says, interior is made very cheap, inside of the rear doors are rusting, rear wiper hinge has broke many times, tires wear unevenly.

8 Sep

Still have my baby 13 plus years and 145,000 miles later, and only had to replace the transmission gear which was still under warranty and normal wear and tear things like, wiper blades, tires, oil changes every 3,000 miles, no other problems.

30 May

At one time I thought my transmission was going bad,

5 Nov

At 104,000 miles (2011) the transmission went out.

10 Jul

Just replaced the clutch fan on the trans.

3 Aug

Now at 94,000 miles I have a transmission leak on the line, transmission shifts hard and may need to be replaced.

24 Jul

at 62000 miles the transmission has developed.

22 Jun

I have had this truck less than 5 years and I have already needed a new transmission, a new throttle unit and a gas pump unit.

7 Aug

but there was nothing wrong with it clear up until it started knocking, we are told that the engine light is a common Chevy problem.

12 Apr

During that trip, they misplaced one of the license plates, didn't drive the truck as they said they did ( they also were to find out why the engine light was on, which was a mystery to 2 other mechanics) Junk!
