My 2009 Traverse that I paid $6k cash for In Oct 2018 has now sat out front for 7 mon because I cannot afford to pay $3000 to replace the timing chain. It is a POS and I would love to be a part of a lawsuit against generous motors to be held accountable for this horrible fail on their part! If aNyone else is intereste, have ideas or a attorney in mind, please contact me! this Mom needs A vehicle

sorry to hear that you bought someone elses problem.
Would have been wise to hit the forums BEFORE buying this model year.
Unfortunately you bought it too late also- as the 2009s had an extended warranty on the chains- but they have since expired.

If you do find someone to fix your chains at a reasonable price- remember to check your oil level often- and keep the oil level at the full mark.

Direct injection engines begin to use oil as the miles increase. Low oil levels is one reason the chains wear.
So- if you fix it- maintain proper oil level and stick to 3000-5000 miles oil change intervals.

I grew up in Michigan, moved when I was 25, have drove nothing but Chevy’s. Single Mom in her 50’s who bought the 2009 back in Oct 2018 from a guy on my Nextdoor App. He answered all my questions without a flinch of an eye. This is a Chevrolet problem that they should be held accountable if they extended the warranty then (obviously) they need to be the ones with a permanent fix.
If anyone knows of an attorney OR would like to band together for the sake of holding Chevy accountable, please let me know. I feel robbed by generous motors

Not what you want to hear, but.........

You are wasting your time. No attorney is going to take on your case on a 12 year old car that is long out of even the extended warranty.
