2010 Chevrolet Traverse Owner Comments

Air conditioning/heat does not work properly. A/C will blow hot air sometimes and sometimes the blower will only work on front vents. The defrost will not blow at the top vents. No matter what setting you put it on it only blows in the front. Tsb #pie-0161 NHTSA #10038747. Yet another known problem that I can't get my Chevy dealer to cover. I had the actuator replaced and that helped with the having all the vents work but the A/C will run hot sometimes. If I have the heat on in the morning and then try to use the A/C later in the afternoon the A/C will run hot. If I start the car with the A/C on in the beginning of the day it will stay cold. It is only when switching between settings.

Heater and A/C wasn't working correctly as hot and cold air weren't consistently blowing through the vents. Dealer stated the problem with the heater and A/C is due to a bad temperature actuator which will cost about $350 plus tax. They replaced the mode door actuator system in Dec 2013 because no air was blowing through the defrost vents, which cost $415. Electronics keep failing and are expensive to repair/replace.

The contact owns a 2010 Chevrolet Traverse. The contact stated that the temperature adjustment was distracting because instead of there being turning knobs to adjust the temperature, there were digital buttons instead. The manufacturer was not notified of the issue. The approximate failure mileage was 32,000.
