I am going to attribute the better numbers for 2010 to the fact that there haven't been any timing chain issues reported.
There was one member who just posted a couple of weeks ago about timing chain problems in their 2010, so that's one this forum knows about...hard to say how many others are really out there.

EDIT: Build date was September 2009 on this particular 2010, so early in the 2010 cycle. Might be tough to figure out when the engine was assembled.

We've updated our reliability stats for the Traverse to include owner experiences through June 30, 2013.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2013 Traverse: 37, moderate
2012 Traverse: 22, low
2011 Traverse: 45, moderate
2010 Traverse: 59, moderate
2009 Traverse: 64, moderate

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2012 Traverse: 87, < 1
2011 Traverse: 64, 2
2010 Traverse: 53, 6
2009 Traverse: 52, 1

We'll have further updates later this month and in February.

I'm willing to bet the 2013's went up form 2012 because of the MYLINK.. and the change in the braking system that now has the 2013 making a clunk/click when you start to drive.

Other than the Radio I've had no issues.

Radio seems better with the update on it now.

The 09 and 10's was all do to timing chains and steering clunk.

What is cable with connector I see just under driver side doors?

I just got my 2015 Traverse, 130 miles and walking from parking lot toward it I see a cable with a green connector in middle just under driver side doors. What is this and is it supposed to be connected under the car somewhere. It is not totally loose but I am not used to seeing something like that under a car.

New stuff this time. We've updated our reliability stats for the Traverse and other Lambdas to include owner experiences through the end of 2014. Plus we've added reliability trends graphs. These indicate how a model's reliability has changed as it has aged, and how different model years performed when the same age.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2014 Traverse: 30, moderate
2013 Traverse: 23, low
2012 Traverse: 24, low
2011 Traverse: 53, moderate
2010 Traverse: 69, high
2009 Traverse: 80, high

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2013 Traverse: 75, < 1
2012 Traverse: 84, < 1
2011 Traverse: 59, < 1
2010 Traverse: 48, 3
2009 Traverse: 48, 6

We'll have further updates in May and in August. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

First of all I would like to thank Traverse God for his info on interior lights on my Traverse. I tried for days to figure out why they were not coming on inside. He told about the switch above the knob. I screamed with joy when it worked. I had been to the dealer to have recall work done. So they must of forgot to turn them back on. I just bought a 2010 LTZ Traverse. I love it. I have owned toyotas for eight years. But I needed a better mileage suv. I've been very impressed with the mileage I get. Love the car! Hope it treats me as good as my toyotas have.
