If your Chevrolet Traverse has recurring problems that won’t go away, it may be considered a lemon.
Under the California Lemon Law, a lemon is a vehicle with recurring problems that will not go away, despite a reasonable number of repair attempts by authorized repair facilities. These problems must negatively impact the use, safety or value of your vehicle.
Many owners and lessees of Chevrolet Traverse vehicles report problems that do just that.

Those symptoms are problematic on their own. However, owners and lessees also have reported loss of power, a burning oil smell and even vehicle fires.

Seat Belts and Airbag Problems
If your “service airbag” light has illuminated on your dashboard, take your Chevy Traverse to a repair shop and make sure your airbags are in working order. Faulty airbags could put you at an increased risk of injury or death during a collision.
Chevrolet Traverse owners and lessees reported problems such as airbag sensor failure and, during crash situations, airbags failing to deploy. To make matters worse, seat belt problems such as failure to latch, faulty brackets and malfunctions during crash situations could put occupants at an even further risk of injury or death.
Transmission problems are common in lemon law cases. Your Chevrolet Traverse may be no exception; if it has repeated problems that seemingly won’t go away, it may be a lemon.
In California lemon law cases, common transmission problems may include shaking, shuddering, jerking, surging, vibration, shifting problems and transmission failure. According to complaints submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, surging, jerking and transmission failure are rather common. In particular, Chevrolet Traverse vehicles may surge while in reverse, among other problems.
Repeated brake problems may be a sign that your Chevrolet Traverse is defective.
Brake problems may be a result of faulty brake sensors or brake boosters. However, other signs of brake problems may include unintended acceleration, brakes not working as intended, or even unexpected noises when you depress the brakes.
Whatever the case, unchecked brake problems will make your vehicle unsafe to drive.
Recurring steering problems may make your Chevrolet Traverse difficult to control. According to complaints submitted to NHTSA, this particular model is known to have power steering problems, such as hose leaks, pump problems, diminished steering and power steering failure.
