My 2022 Traverse RS - Problems (So Far)

Picked up my 22 Traverse RS model in Black back in late December. No heated seats and no heated steering wheel (later retrofit). To date I have 3,500mls on it.

1. Floor carpeting in driver foot well (especially at left foot rest) is loose and and moves under your feet. Almost like the insulation is missing. Brought it to the dealer and if course it's "normal" according to them. It wasn't normal on my 19 Traverse.

2. Rear seat(s) squeak everytime I go over a bump.

3. First day, SD card removed warning. I have to eject card and reinsert to get it to work. This is on a daily basis. Dealer can't "recreate" issue. Yeah ok. I think they just don't know how to fix it.

4. Battery dead at 1,700mls. Vehicle towed and battery replaced. Alternator seems iffy to me. Voltage seems to be too low to charge battery at times (12.4-12.5v). Other times it's at 14.5v but not for long. Dealer tells me this is "normal".

5. Radio audio sometimes doesn't work. Comes on but no audio. Shut car off and on and it comes back on. Also sometimes changing the station via the steering wheel controls causes it to skip or not light up station it's on. Didn't have it looked at yet, but I'm sure I'll get the it's "normal" routine from the dealer. Just to note, my 21 Silverado has the same exact issues with it's radio and steering wheel control button.

6. Sometimes hear/feel a metal clicking from the front end that almost sounds/feel like ABS engagement. Happened twice randomly, and happened this morning making a turn under acceleration, but the forward collision lights on the dash flashed and beeped, and I heard/felt it again. Anyone experience anything like this?

7. Steering making noise when turning right and left. Sounds like a bad power steering pump noise.

8. Squeaky brakes in the early cool mornings.

Btw, between this thing and my 2021 Silverado with 25,000mls that is currently having the lifters replaced, I'm quickly tiring of GM products and GM dealers with their "it's normal" BS. But at least I got the auto stop override button I wanted.

I've been leasing my vehicles for 2 decades now, and this is the biggest reason why. I would be absolutely furious if I paid to own these peices of ****. I give them back after 36 months and just walk away.
We always lease our vehicles. We decided to purchase our 22 Traverse though. We made the purchase when Chevy was offering 0%. I’m looking to trade or sell very soon. Just not very impressed with the vehicle.

Has anyone noticed a noise when turning your steering wheel? It sounds like a vehicle that is running low on power steering fluid.
No. But I believe the power steering is now electric.
Yes, I was reading that. I have no idea what the noise is but it’s really noticeable.
My 2018 had the squeak when turning. Turned out to be the rubber dust boot that surrounds the steering shaft. Dealer fixed under bumper to bumper warranty. Just a goofy design as it will eventually split and tear.
That’s interesting, that may be the culprit to my problem.
Holy crap. My wife just called and was complaining about the steering wheel making noise when she makes turns. Holy crap. I just want to take it back to the dealership and hand them the keys.
How does she describe the noise?
Just when I thought the radio was fixed! Wrong. Back with the fisheye,black screen and Bluetooth goes crazy. Dealer said new update should fix issue. Wrong! Can’t wait for the next excuse. Steering wheel still makes noise when you turn at low speed. So much for quality on the 22 traverse with 9600ish miles
My steering wheel makes a noise also. My car still has less than 4000 miles and has been making the noise for probably at least the past 2000 miles.
