The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse is a three-row family SUV that can seat eight passengers. The Traverse is offered in seven different trim levels at dealerships like the Cottonwood Chevrolet Dealer. Powering the 2021 Traverse is a 3.6-liter V6 engine that develops 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, teamed to a nine-speed automatic gearbox.
Your Traverse was a significant investment. You’ll want to keep it running properly by taking it to a dealership like Flagstaff Chevrolet, the Chevy dealer serving Cottonwood, for scheduled maintenance. Following Chevrolet’s recommended maintenance schedule will help ensure your vehicle will run reliably and safely. You’ll find the maintenance schedule in your Traverse’s owner’s manual.
These are some of the primary service highlights.
Chevrolet recommends bringing the 2021 Chevy Traverse for scheduled maintenance every 7,500 miles. During each service visit, our certified service technicians will change the SUVs’ oil and oil filter. This essential service will prevent engine wear. While motor oil is formulated to last a long time, the oil needs to be flushed out and replaced at regular intervals.
A brake inspection is another essential service that will be performed during this service visit. Brake pads wear faster when the Traverse is driven in stop-and-go traffic. Driving over a curb or a pothole can cause the suspension system to become misaligned, so the service technician will inspect the tires and look for signs of wear and other indications that the wheels need to be aligned. Other services that will be performed during this service visit include a tire rotation, a check of the fluid levels, and a wiper inspection.
When your odometer makes it to the 45,000-mile mark, the service technicians will perform the services of the 7,500-mile service visit. They’ll also replace the engine’s air cleaner filter. If this filter becomes clogged, you’ll notice a drop in performance. If the air intake is blocked, your Traverse will experience weak acceleration and a decline in fuel economy. The technicians will also change the transmission fluid during this visit.
At 100,000 miles, the service technicians will replace the spark plugs. Driving with old spark plugs will cause a drop in performance. The vehicle may be hard to start and get lower fuel economy. The check engine light may also come on.
During this visit, the service technicians will change the engine’s coolant. The coolant helps to keep the engine from overheating in hot temperatures and from freezing in cold weather. If the coolant is old, it’s unable to prevent oxidation, which can cause corrosion. The technicians will also check the Traverse’s coolant hoses and drive belts for signs of wear. If they are cracked or deteriorating, they’ll be replaced.
