Check engine light came on 6/19/14. Made appointment for 6/24/14 to have checked and also oil change. Dealer stated there is a $40 charge for putting on the tester for the engine light. Used blue onstar and was told it had to do with the emission and would affect fuel getting to engine and recommended repairs within 7 days. Check engine light went off on the way to dealer. However dealer checked and said everything checked out ok and did not charge. Light came on next day. Returned to dealer for light which had come on again and off again and one of two recalls which I had never been notified about. I am still waiting on the parts which had to be ordered for one of the recalls which is not yet repaired. Was last there on 7/15 and now I am told that it is an emission problem and will affect my fuel mileage and needs repaired and repairs cost approx $380 and of course the extended warranty for emission ran out at 80,000 miles.. I also an issue probably when vehicle was 2 years old where my power steering went out while driving. This was replaced with a new power steering pump. I was fortunately on a two lane residential road an coasted to a relatively safe place and had to have car towed. Thank god for triple aaa. This was covered under my fox extended warranty and only cost was time aggravation and loss of vehicle while repairs. I also have a off and on rubbing squeaking sound in the steering column when making turns. I am about ready to trade vehicles and am not financially able to afford the needed repairs. For this car. I am losing all faith in the vehicle.

2010 Chevy Traverse lt gas gauge is all over the place, was on the empty mark with about 1/8 tank gas left but gauge read full or my gauge to not read correctly; after filling, the gauge would not move the opposite would occur also; the gauge would show the tank with more gas than what I actually had. Hey replaced the float and still not working in fact it's worse.

Vehicle suddenly accelerated and gas pedal stuck at about 65 miles per hour. I immediately took my foot off the accelerator and begin trying to brake the vehicle. At the first available opportunity, I pulled to the side of the expressway. While keeping both feet on the brake, I placed the transmission into park. The vehicle continued to rev rpms at the equivalent of about 65 miles per hour. I used my right hand to pull the accelerator up and the engine returned to a normal idle. I noticed no evidence of the floor mat being on the accelerator or in a position to cause the sudden acceleration or the continued engine rapid rpms. The same day, the accelerator stuck a second time and required me to pull the gas pedal up in order to get the engine to return to normal rpms.
