Re: Timing Chain Issues and Extended Warranty
UGH! We have a 2010 Chevy Traverse as well, which we bought brand new in 2010 and it has just under 80,000 miles on it. The check engine light came on and went off a few times over the past 3 months, and I brought it it to get checked out. The dealer said it's the timing chains and they have to be replaced, which is very labor intensive since the engine has to be dropped, my bill will be $2,800. I asked him he's seen this happen on the Traverse with such low mileage and he said "whenever the check engine light comes on in a Traverse, it's the timing chains". And, of course, after further inspection, the water pump is leaking and will have to be replaced. The extended warranty is up so we're on our own for the repairs. This vehicle has been a huge headache, power steering had major problems, the A/C went out twice and had to be completely re-done...and now this.....So my question is, have you had any luck with GM paying for any of the repairs. And, after you had it fixed, did you have any other problems? My son works at a FORD dealership and I'm having them give me a quote on the repairs as well, as I'd get his employee discount on the parts.
