2023 Chevy Traverse Recalled For Missing Half-Shaft Retaining Ring1
GM has issued a product recall for certain units of the 2023 Chevy Traverse due to a missing left-side half-shaft retaining ring.
The problem: vehicles built without this retaining ring have the potential for half-shaft inner joint separation, which could result in a loss of drive power or a vehicle rollaway while the affected vehicle is parked.
The hazards: if the half-shaft inner joint were to be separated, affected vehicles have an increased risk of a serious crash.
The fix: certified GM technicians will be instructed to inspect half-shafts and add the retaining ring necessary, all free of charge.
Affected components: left-side half-shaft retaining ring.
Number of affected vehicles: GM believes there are only 10 affected vehicles with this issue, although the Chevy Blazer is also included in the recall.
