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. This thing is buggy and unstable.

First problem is non electrical. 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.

Second problem, non electrical. Rear seat(s) squeak everytime I go over a bump.

Third problem, 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.

Fourth problem, 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".

Fifth problem. 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.

Sixth problem. 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?

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.

That's too many problems for a new car

Has anyone noticed a noise when turning your steering wheel? It sounds like a vehicle that is running low on power steering fluid.
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.

No, it doesn't cover it up. I have the OEM Chevy floor liners, which fit much better than the weathertech floor liners (had them for my 19), and they don't extend high enough to cover the foot rest. The problem with the carpet moving is higher up in the footwell, near the final edge of it. It's almost as if it was cut to short to fit properly and will not lay flat.
Okay, maybe it doesn't cover it up COMPLETELY but I have the Chevy floor liners too and I sort of know what you're talking about but I don't EVER think about it because the liner is there and I'm never looking at the foot rest area, lol

You don't have to look at it, you can feel it moving/giving way under the weight of your foot.
