Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2014 Chevrolet Traverse Owner Comments

problem #3

While driving at a speed around 25-30 mph the vehicle had multiple issues arise at once: 1.) the vehicle started shaking violently and accelerating independently with engine RPM's reaching as high as 6000. The vehicle continued this and would jump from around 2000 RPM to 6000 RPM and continue to accelerate on its own; 2.) error message, failure, and complete loss of the traction control system; 3.) error message, failure, and complete loss of the stabilitrack system; and 4.) error message and failure of the park assist system. The vehicle was pulled to the side of the road and shut off for a few minutes. When restarted the problems reoccurred and the vehicle required towing to the nearest Chevrolet dealership. This is not a unique problem to one Traverse. This has been a reoccurring issue with multiple documented complaints over the years and no recalls or service bulletins have been issued to address it. This is a highly dangerous problem and could cause a major accident with serious injuries or death.
