These are the worst of the worst. The dealer in Aiken SC has already repaired this and in 13 months has to be done again..I bought this car used from a chevy dealer in lexington SC and it has been the worst vehicle I have EVER owned. We may be approaching 8000.00 in repairs including what the limited warranty did . It is such a ridculous number I will NEVER own another GM vehicle again. I am looking down the throat of another 2000.00 repair bill. Though many people apparantly can afford to keep trashing their income like this I cannot. I feel like chevrolet (the corporation) has sold me defective parts on this last go round and the dealer is using this as a technicality to jump the warranty. This vehicle even had to have the rack and pinion replaced also. The sensors on this thing are a crumbling mess and they (auto industry) wants us to trust their sensors to actually control the cars...they have lost their minds.
These vehicles and their cam/actuator/position sensors systems are defective and they GM should be replacing them with parts that will not crumble on you.
The other thing that my new mechanic has told me still does not make sense to me. Due to the timing advancing when the engine gets hot I can drive it once then if I shut it down it will not crank for several hours..it shows low battery?? but the alternator
battery,wiring,everything checks out as ok. My other mechanic finally says starter and I replaced it,..well it seemed to solve the problem with the cranking but now it is happening again, same symptoms..he read the computer and it shows tons of misfires on 4 cylinders and this new mechanic does not think the starter is the issue.. This car has me so confused and I am no idiot when it comes to cars...so anyway..so much for the rant but would like to know if anyone else has had this symptom and what the end result was?? Mine is a 2009 Traverse LTZ...I think the Z means that you get even more stuff to only break down.
