Copy of E-Mail sent; Dear UAW 602, I understand that your members are those employed at the Lansing Delta Township Assembly Plant that built our new 2014 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ. After logging almost 3500 miles in 7 days with my family on vacation in this vehicle, I feel the need to send you this note and say a very well deserved "GREAT JOB" !!! The engineering, design, fit, finish, build quality of this vehicle are all excellant !!! All systems and features performed perfectly. The ride, handling and comfort superb !!! This by far is the most competant and nicest Chevy I've ever owned. Even my wife likes it and that's says it all !!! We could not be happier with it !!! Ken R.
Car historically has issues with stability controls and will shut off without warning. Problems started within first 25000 miles . Spend day shutting off car to have computer reset and drive until It happens again. I have been told by service that's pretty standard for those cars . Not covered under gm settlement this is a separate issue that is in early stages of litigation.
We were in a car accident on the passenger side. We have running boards on our car and the other car hooked on our running board causing the other cars front end to be yanked off! We drove home and when we were hit we thought a tire blew! There was little impact!
We always wanted one of these, saw one as a demonstrator (had 5000 mi on it) on the dealer floor, made an offer and voila, we owned a Traverse. It looks great on the outside but here are the reasons we want to get rid of it. First, I am tall and seat is all the way back so that may affect some of these comments.1. Instrumentation hard to see in corners - cluster and center stack are both affected. 2. Controls are just touch with no tactile feedback when you push them. Some times they work, sometimes they don't. 3. Fuel Economy - about the same as my 2017 Ram Quad Cab 4x4 (shameful) 4. Thought rear HVAC had a short in it, until we figured out it was our elbows turning it on from the rear seat control at the top of the Armrest area 5. Headrest is forever ratcheting forward and pushes on our necks. You have to keep resetting it manually. 6. Seats uncomfortable and have awkward motion. 7. 3rd row seating is unusable. You can't get back there to buckle in a car seat and adults - even short ones forget it. You have a 4 year window for younger kids. 8. Transmission is notchy and hunts at times. I thought I blew it up once. Dealer says its normal. 9. Handling very unstable, especially at highway speeds and with road undulations it can be a handful on corners. Dealer says this is normal too. Fit and Finish are good, but really this is the bottom of the segment as far as I am concerned, with the exception of the most ugly Ford Flex. Nothing could forgive that.
