281-horsepower 3.6L V6 6-speed shiftable automatic FWD

75000 mi   Water Pump went out on a trip with the family. Pulled into Chevy Dealership along the way. Repair was made that day. No cost to the customer since Warranty covered the repair. 
89000 US $2000 Valve bodies had to be replaced on Traverse or they could have replaced the transmission. I went with valve body replacement. Car has under 100,000 miles but is over the 5 year power train warranty period. 
64000   Transmission froze-up and wouldn't shift gears automatically. 
141000 US $680 Two sensors were replaced. Fluid changed. 
45700 US $300 Rack and pinion damaged. Bushings damaged and motor mounts. 
22320   They have also noted a suspected transmission fluid leak and added dye to figure out where it is when I take it in for steering work. Transmission seal leaking. Replaced $8 gasket under warranty. 
56420   Jury still out on whether this is a problem. Car has been vibrating at certain RPM. Dealer says it's just fuel economy settings in transmission controls that are leaving the engine to chug instead of shifting down. Problem seems new to us. 
81000   Transmission in reverse was apparently dumping metal into the transmission, causing other gears to slip or not engage at all. Had to use manual to override and skip 3rd gear on more than 1 occasion. 
67300   Transmission hesitating when shifting into this and fifth. 
14260   irregular shift patterns under little acceleration...feels like transmission wobbles at times
