Hello all, we bought our traverse new in 2018 and have had non-stop electrical issues. At times, it has flashed multiple error messages, failed to start, failed to engage in park, and the infotainment screen goes black periodically. Today, while my wife was driving our two children to school, the dash lights all lit up and the screen read “engine power is reduced.” She was lucky not to have been killed when the car lost speed on the highway. The dealer is saying it is error code p0091 and that we need a new fuel pump. The car is only two years old with 40k miles so I’m a little surprised to need a new fuel pump. Conveniently, the power train warranty doesn’t cover the fuel pump. I am really, really disappointed in our traverse. Anyone else have similar issues?

I'm having the exact same problem with the same number of miles on the car. Of course the bumper to bumper warranty is only good to 36,000 miles. This seems to be a pretty common issue....this is not the only issue we've had with our Traverse. I will never purchase another Chevy......non stop issue. The fuel pump is 1300 dollars to repair.

Looks like Rock Auto has fuel pumps for the 2018 from $126 to $317. I think if it were me, I'd shy away from the GM oem pump if I only got 40K miles before the pump went out. I know changing a fuel pump is beyond what most would feel comfortable doing, but it can be done in a weekend and in the process, saving yourself a ton of labor $$$.
