2016 Chevrolet Traverse Owner Comments

  • 4,000 miles


Unexpected notice of a service warning light that suddenly appeared on my wife's Traverse after driving for 2 weeks..... lisa and I purchased a demo Traverse with 4000 miles, at a ft pierce Chevrolet location recently... we went on a two week trip to Hawaii and returned this past week, as we started the car, upon our return, my wife exclaimed ; I have a warning airbag notice light on.... so I thought !,( maybe it was the fact I hadn't buckled my seat belt yet, as I entered the started car, maybe my seat wasn't function right or something)..... I had her turn off the car and restart it. Continually, (throughout the day yesterday), as we traveled around, doing christmas shopping, this warning reappeared each time we stopped, got out to shop and return to start the Traverse.. when I returned home, I google the meaning of this warning, what was it causes, what it entailed / how to remedy this warning and my startled and dismayed as the search results popped up.... Chevrolet was aware of the design defect in the Traverse vehicles, but did not warn us or other consumers prior to purchasing. The defective airbags causes safety concerns and diminishes the resale value of this vehicle, the defective airbags in the Traverse may cause unsafe driving conditions and financial burden to us as owners. As noted ignoring the active service air bag warning light will eventually result in the non-deployment of the side impact restraints, which include driver and passenger seat-mounted side air bags, front center air bag (if equipped), and the seat belt pre-tensioners. Seems this issue has been a recurring model issue since 2010.. I'm not happy and hope the dealership is able to remedy this issue, for her, in a timely manner, but I still needed to post a notice to this site.....

The contact owns a 2016 Chevrolet Traverse. While driving approximately 10 mph, the vehicle lost power. The vehicle was pulled over to the side of the road, turned off, and restarted. The vehicle was taken to a local dealer who was unable to duplicate or diagnose the failure. The contact took the vehicle home, but the failure recurred a couple of days later. The vehicle was towed back to the dealer who, again, was unable to duplicate the failure. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and stated that nothing could be done without a duplication of the failure. The contact stated that he would not drive the vehicle until the failure was diagnosed. The failure mileage was 1,600.

  • 3,500 miles
On two occasions ( 2/21/16 and 2/28/16) while driving the power cut out completely and the car stalled. I was unable to steer the vehicle or stop. There were not any warnings or notifications such as the check engine light. The dashboard and all other lights/ information was completely dark. The first occasion was on a highway going approximately 30 miles per hour and the second was on a city street approaching a stop sign. Cause unknown. I took the car to the dealership and they claim they cannot find a cause. I was encouraged to take the car be because the cause is unknown. I refused because of the safety concerns.
