2009 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Purchased 1-8-09, fully loaded $45K. From day one problems every few months. Four serious problems. On 2 long trips this vehicle almost left us stranded on the road. Once, it almost caught fire(bad cable connection under hood), rear lift gate left strut went bad and lift gate fell right on my head. GM & Chevy say: Well, it is fixed now and that then end of what we will do.
Inspect the lift gate struts and see if they can be replaced with a strong strut assembly. But, GM does not care.
