General Motors / 2009 chevy traverse
Purchased vehicle brand new, Did all scheduled maintenance on it. Was told by Auto Tech to make sure to check the oil at every fuel fill up as they have been aware about major oil consumption in these cars. Then I did receive a notice that GM has changed the oil change mileage from 10, 000 to 7, 000. Went to that schedule.
At the beginning of 2015 my car was diagnosed with a timing chain issue. 2 weeks later I receive a notice extending the warranty for the timing chain to 120, 000. However the letter was dated for November 2014 and I did not receive it until the end of Jan 2015 at which time my car had mileage
of 122, 000.
Then I receive another notice in Nov of 2015 of another extended warranty on the throttle position sensor which turns out to be in the throttle body. So the entire Throttle body needs to be replaced.
As of the beginning of Feb.2016 the timing chain has had a catastrophic fail and will not start as compression testing has determined that compression pressure is too low.
I have been advised to contact GM to help remedy the problem. After $700 so far to have this already diagnosed GM wants me to tow the car to a dealer and pay another $200 plus to have it diagnosed again. GM not willing to cover either of these costs. They must think that everyone is made of money.
I am at a loss.
