Warning: Airbag Sensor Problems!
By PAW483 on
2009 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
We bought our Chevy Traverse LTZ on January 2, 2009. We bought this because it was very similar to our Cadillac SRX which was also fully loaded (and it actually has a real 3rd row!). We did some research and found that the safety rating was perfect and the airbag system was top of the line. We wanted this to be our family vehicle. However, within two weeks of our purchase we made a cross country trip to Chicago for a family members funeral (I don't fly and always drive.) That's when I first notice our "CHECK AIRBAG SYSTEM" warning light came on. Well, to make a long story short. This problem has happened 5 times and they have made repair attempts and the problem still occurs. (See Below).
Heated & Cooled (Front seats), DVD Player for passengers in the back, Rearview backup camera, storage & space, on-star.
GM excuse after all attempts. They issue a bulletin with several other GM models warning that use of any "electronic devices" used or place on the front seat or anywhere in the car can cause this problem. So, don't buy this vehicle if you or kids use a cell phone, I-pod, computer or game boys etc.!
