Biggest piece of crap!

by Sheri from Shakopee, MN | December 26, 2019

This vehicle has been the biggest nightmare and Chevrolet/General Motors won't work with me to repair the issues! Multiple repairs and still having issues - I do not feel safe driving the vehicle!

Don't purchase a Lemon

by Ravenzashes from Mount Jackson, VA | December 24, 2019

Trax not only had control arm recall, but the transfer case failed and seized. The dealership had it for five months and when we finally got it back it's still acting like it wants to seize again. Also will not go past 3rpmed at all when the engine is revved. Do not buy this car is a death trap waiting to happen .

Biggest mistake of my life

by GMSUCKS from Saskatchewan | December 09, 2019

The car is just a piece of xxxx. I have had nothing but issues with the car since I bought it. I have spent over 8 hours on the phone with GM about the issues and they refused to help. The biggest issue with this car is that it cannot handle winter. The cold causes the sensor to freeze causing the check engine light to come on. GM tried to "fix" the issue in my car a total of 3 times now. The other issues include collision alert going off randomly, check engine light coming on, side detection not working, engine randomly shutting off in traffic, high revving in the highway along with a million other problems. Currently waiting to get my car fixed right now. For anyone thinking about buying a GM car out there MAKE BETTER DECISIONS!
