2018 Chevrolet Traverse Reliability - Consumer Reports
After about a decade, Chevrolet has finally replaced the first-generation Traverse three-row crossover with a new model that delivers on room, comfort, refinement and connectivity. Not only is it competitive with popular three-row SUVs, such as the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, and Toyota Highlander, it beats them in their own game. And it also serves as a viable alternative to the full-sized Chevy Suburban.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2018 Chevrolet Traverse owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

Transmission Minor

Gear selector or linkage, leaks, transmission computer, transmission sensor or solenoid, clutch adjustment, rough shifting, slipping transmission.

What Owners Say

Gear selector or linkage

"When you stopped the vehicle and shifted into Park, the shit to park warning indicator came on and would not go off. In other words, the system did not recognize that the vehicle was in park. It was very difficult to get the alarm to go off. I had to keep shifting back and forth and messing with the selector to get the alarm to go off. The radio also would not go off. Had to take it to the dealer to have the selector assembly replaced."

Anonymous, FL (2018 Chevrolet Traverse LT 3.6-L V6)

"the shifter assembly was defective and would not sense that the vehicle was in Park. This prevented the vehicle from being powered off competely. The vehicle spent almost 6 weeks at the dealership in order to obtain a replacement part. A rental car was provided for the duration and the costs we covered by warranty. First year of new models often have growing pains. I remain very pleased with the second generation Chevrolet Traverse."

Steve V., MI (2018 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ 3.6-L V6)

"I would put the car in Park and turn off the engine, but the car would give me an error message that the car was not in park. I was not able to lock the car when this message was given, although I could still drive the car. I had to turn it on, put it in drive, put it in park, turn it off, and repeat until the message disappeared."

"The car has had shifting issues from the first month we got it. Over time they have slowly gotten worse. CHEVROLET can't seem to be able to recreate the problem so no action is ever taken. It stumbled and shut off once, now warning, no codes. They don't know why. I'll never buy another GM veh, I have been a GM guy all my life, till now."

Anonymous, IL (2018 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ 3.6-L V6)

"From the beginning the transmission would shudder during low speed gear shifts. This was a common issue with the newer 9 speed transmissions in the vehicles and early assembly dates. The early models had the incorrect transmission fluid added at the manufacturer. A Technical Service Bulletin was eventually released to all dealerships. The fuild was changed and the transmission computer reprogrammed about 18 months ago and have not had any reoccurences since."

Anonymous, NS (2018 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ 3.6-L V6)

"Vehicle shudders when shifting but is not consistent, does it 80+% of the time. Been problematic determining the cause, Chevrolet is in process of getting parts to change out torque converter, hope it fixes it.. makes you feel like do I have a lemon, other wise great vehicle I love. Have been getting 29 mpg on trips, fantastic.. fix the shuddering!"

Slipping transmission

"Occasionally when shifting from park to drive, transmission does not immediately engage. For this brief time (a few seconds) the transmission acts as if it is In neutral and vehicle can move if on incline and foot off brake."

"Performed recall to try to fix problem. Finally replaced tourqe converter."

Anonymous, MI (2018 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ 3.6-L V6)

"The traverse has two peculiar issues with the transmission. One is the sensor (I’m guessing) when I start the car and then take off immediately after starting. It hesitates when I put it in reverse or drive before the engine and transmission sync. I have to reapply brake and wait for the car to actually engage the trans and take off. So, I start car and let it sync before taking off. Second, more serious, is that on mountains / steep grades for several miles the transmission heats up horribly going up a mountain ( can smell the overheated transmission when in low 2nd gear) for the drive up. When going down the mountain, I put it in low to get the transmission to assist in slowing the speed, but it doesn’t work. It’s like I left it drive or put it in neutral. I end up riding the brakes. All the way down the mountain. We have a cabin in Hiawassee, GA in the Appalachian mountains. Out here in Texas we have no steep grades around here and beside the hesitation it works great and gets great gas mileage on flat ground. It’s not very good driving through mountains."

"The car didn't recognize that it had been shifted into Park. It would give a warning tone if I tried to leave the car. Had to turn it off and back on multiple times until it recognized it had been shifted. This happened several times with increasing frequency over about three weeks. I eventually was able to learn a workaround from the dealer which helped until I could get it in to be fixed."

Transmission sensor or solenoid

"#5 sensor failed."

Anonymous, MI (2018 Chevrolet Traverse LT 3.6-L V6)

"Shift to park issue. Even though vehicle is in park, message comes up on screen that says "shift to park". This causes warning signal to keep dinging and you are unable to lock the vehicle. Problem started with less than 10000 miles. Experienced this problem about 6 times. Dealer was able to fix problem with installation of a jumper wire."

Transmission rebuild or replacement

"At 9000 miles, the transmission began to shift erratically at highway speed on I-55 to Chicago. Car than started dropping out of gear completely. Stopped, turned engine off, then restarted. Car would pull away slowly would be not stay in gear past 1500 rpm. And then tranny would disengage, then re-engage constantly. Had to pull into truck stop as engine light came on. Nightmare on what I considered a new car. 9-speed tranny had completely failed and would not shift out of 1st gear. Had towed to nearest dealer. Inspection showed 6-7-8-9 gears were messed up, 4-5 gears were coming apart. Dealer got GM powertrain division involved and they counseled how to repair the transmission. It was complete rebuild. Mechanic thinks the valve body was defective, and GM had issued a bulletin about this in early 2018. In the end, the car was repaired and has been ok since, but still shifts roughly in lower gears and it hunts for gears at times like it's confused what gear to be in."

Steve B., IL (2018 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ 3.6-L V6)

"Transmission sometimes not shifting out of park. Took in; no codes found. Addressed a TSR that wasn’t a 100% match (shift cable replacement). Went to pick up car; on drive away from dealership, the transmission started acting up causing major sputtering/hesitation. Pulled off road and shut car off; started back up and it wouldn’t move (SES illuminated). Had to have it towed 1/2 mile back to dealership. Transmission had failed."

"Fake dual exhaust system , the system on both sides join together at an x before the fake dual tailpipes.The back pressure at higher speed or load cause a rumble noise .Dealer says they can not duplicate the condition I described.
