approximately 72k miles. We just purchased the car and its our first Traverse.



I am feeling a vibration in the steering wheel when reaching speeds between 50-70 mph. Once you maintain speeds the vibration seems to come an go.



Car has 4 brand new tires, Wheels are 100% balanced and front end is 100% aligned.



I read somewhere that you can reset the suspension by disconnecting battery for 5-10 minutes? I haven't tried it yet.


Also the oil life is at 58% and we just had an oil change?



If anyone has any ideas or advice that would be awesome.


We purchased the car on Carvana and we are in the 7 day trial period.


We love the car, but this vibration lol


Thanks for any feed back and have a great day.

dont know where you read about the battery/electrical- and suspension.
The Traverse suspension has no electrical components. So that will do nothing for you.

though this vibration at 50-70 has come up before.
I dont recall the solution.
Do a search on here, acadia, and Enclave forum to see if there was a solution.

Sounds like someone did an oil change and didn't reset the oil life indicator. It's a simple process that is outlined in the owner's manual. (We have a 2015 LTZ and simple love it. We have 76000 miles on it. Only repair was a purge valve that GM covered.)

If you have a 7 day grace period I'd either tell Carvana to fix it and you'll keep the car or return it. Why take that risk?

On a side note, please tell me you got to use one of the car elevators? I want to do that so bad.

I would ask for a recheck on the balancing. Do you feel a vibration on the brake pedal when you apply the brakes at high speed.? Was your balancing done static or dynamic? Dynamic is always the best because it balance the whole wheel including the rotor together on the car.

No vending machine. I was told they have only 1 at this time and I think its in Arizona. They plan on having them all over, and are building a second one. That is information is from a lady I talked to at Carvana.


Its been a pretty cool experience. If you ever buy a car from them let me know lol I have $500 discount for you....and they'll pay me a$100 for the referral.



Take care!

Got the tires balanced and fixed the problem, just in case anyone is interested. yes, carvana paid for it and threw in a $40 detailing certificate for the hassle. thanks for all who gave me advice, much appreciated.
