My wife was sitting in the Traverse the other day while I was busy doing something. She got out and sent me a text explainging that the engine was sputtering then it died and came up with a "Reduced Engine Power" message in the DIC. At first, I was like, "What did you do?" ... she said nothing and I could tell in her eyes that she was starting to turn, like "did we buy a junk vehicle?" Even though we've now had this Traverse for just about 9 months with no problems at all. So I get to the vehicle. It's parked on about a 30-degree uphill parking lot incline and there is almost no fuel in the gas tank. haha. I started it up and it died, started it up and it died while I was trying to back it up and turn. I got to flat ground and it started up and run just fine. I immediately drove it to the gas station and filled up the thirsty girl. No problems since then.
