First long trip done
The Traverse did pretty well over 2800 miles last week with four adult-sized people and five pieces of luggage. The DIC isn't too accurate yet as it displayed nearly 26 MPG, but hand-calculation revealed 24.5 MPG--still very respectable.
However, we're taking it in Thursday as the vehicle would surge while climbing hills (nothing too steep and mountain passes though) whether or not the A/C was on. We dropped about 4000' in elevation on the trip away from home and I filled up with premium top tier fuel to see if that would help--no dice. Toward the end of our return trip the transmission wasn't shifting quite as it should have been as we would slow down to a stop, then accelerate going away from intersections. Engine RPM would increase a bit before the transmission fully engaged into the next gear. My guess is that the vehicle electronics need some updates, but I can't be certain. Our 2010 needed a transmission update pretty early, so I'm not completely surprised here. Still, nothing in DIC has alerted us to any vehicle faults, so hopefully the dealer can diagnose the issues should the issues be present while they're driving it. If not, at least they have record of what we're experiencing if we have to make a return trip later. They were great while we owned the previous 2010 and I've no reason to believe we'll be treated any differently.
I'll post updates as I have them.
