Good job! I have a feeling you have used synthetic oil from day one, followed the recommended service schedule and didn't use cheap fuel.

Dang!

Thanks for the recap.
2nd question... Were all the replacement parts GM, or aftermarket?
I added to the original post. Can you keep me updated on your new traverse because we are gonna buy another next year or when this one dies.By then it will have over 300000 though🤞🏻

Wow! Your Traverse is really looking brand new. The way your are adding the miles I am sure you will be able to reach 1/2 million miles.

Great job man! Best thing I've done to my 2013 Traverse is swap PS/Tranny fluid with Shaffer ATF. No more PS whine or groan. Replaced alternator @ 125k. Only non related regular maintenance I've done. Well I did do end links twice. I hope mine goes as far as yours has!

Was a "part time delivery specialist" for O'Reillys. Its no wonder they can give "lifetime warranty" with the markup on their parts.

Ebay is much cheaper........with one exception, sensors...for the most part...bad stuff.

Congratulations and excellent work!

If you listen to music in it at all, you could do so much better then the stock Blows speakers. Even just changing the front center speaker and front door speakers, then working with the built in equalization on the head unit yields something at least listenable.
