2009 Chevrolet TraverseJosie B - Costa Mesa, CA07/21/2016
My Chevy Traverse is one of the best buys that I have purchased in a long while. From the outside the mid size SUV looks small, but once you are in the car you can really appreciate the size. Three row seating, enough room to carry all 4 of my children with room to spare. I love my TRAVERSE!!!
I love my car!
2016 Chevrolet TraverseAndrea Croyle - Daytona Beach, FL03/15/2017
This car is perfect for a family! It's big, safe and versatile. Gas mileage is decent for an SUV. I love the features. Heated seats, the automatic tailgate and OnStar are my favorite. The only thing I wish the car had is Lane assist. There is a huge blind spot that makes it hard to switch lanes. My next car will be a traverse and it will have parking assist and lane assist.
Worst car I've ever had
2009 Chevrolet TraverseJamie G - lenexa, KS04/28/2017
This car has been the worst vehicle I've ever owned. I've had to have it towed multiple times because of engine issues, fluid leaking etc.. Currently the vehicle is being worked on to repair the same engine issues it had a year and a half ago. There are MULTIPLE known issues with the 2009 Traverse with there being a GM warranty in place to cover those issues even though the car is so old. Luckily I got the extended warranty when I purchased the vehicle and that has covered non known issues but I've still had to pay a $100 deductible each time. Est. the warranty company has paid more than $10k in repairs on this car since 2015. The 09 GMC Acadia is the sister of the Traverse and has the same issues. I would avoid this car like the plague.
Chevrolet Traverse Overview
The Chevrolet Traverse is a spacious, family-friendly SUV with room for up to eight passengers. The three-row crossover has a vast interior space, well-controlled ride, and a sturdy frame. Additionally, the Chevy Traverse should be powerful enough to handle occasional towing needs.
Chevrolet Traverse History
The Chevrolet Traverse was introduced in 2009 as a three-row crossover SUV and has since become a best-seller for Chevy. It satisfies a niche between the minivan and more truck-based SUVs. The Traverse received a refresh in 2013; changes were cosmetic in nature.
How It Drives
The Chevrolet Traverse is powered by a 3.6L V6 engine and is built with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. With a six-speed automatic, the acceleration is solid and able to stand occasional towing needs. Chevy Traverses typically come fully equipped with features consumers have come to expect, such as navigation systems and Bluetooth connectivity.
Used Chevrolet Traverse Value
The Chevrolet Traverse's performance and fuel efficiency are comparable to other crossover SUVs. Turning is sharp and responsive, though handling is not as engaging as other vehicles in its class, such as the Buick Enclave, Saturn Outlook, or GMC Acadia. Interior comfort was clearly prioritized with high-quality upholstery and a steady, controlled ride.
