problem #1

Jun 152013

Traverse 6-cyl

  • 59,000 miles
Power steering abruptly failed on multiple occasions when making turns at approximately 25 mph or less causing near collisions over the course of a couple weeks.. frequency continued to increase so it happened multiple times on a daily basis. Took to local dealership and they couldn't find problem so changed power steering fluid and flushed system. Later that same day the same problem occurred again. I am concerned to let my wife drive the vehicle. Dealership thinks the power steering pump needs to be replaced. Searched online and it appears many Traverse owners are experiencing similar issues. Is there a potential recall on this issue ?
