2014 Chevrolet TraverseEdward K Williams Jr - Fruitland Park, FL04/19/2016
We bought this SUV to carry our kids and grand kids in one vehicle, seats 7. Our grand daughter lives 2 hours away. Our Traverse gets 19-21mpg. We have a 18' boat and our Traverse has a 5400lb towing cap. Our Traverse has a built in DVD player with wireless head phones (that I call a child saver ).
Traverse for the Mrs.
2011 Chevrolet TraverseRich - Travelers rest, SC02/14/2015
My wife and I were shopping for an SUV because she grew tired of minivans. She saw a traverse and fell in love. She likes being up off the pavement higher than the van and likes the third row seat. She also likes how the seats in the rear and middle fold forward flat for hauling large items.
Me being mechanically minded had questions about the traverse's 3.6L engine. I found some reports of the timing chain jumping out of time. I researched and talked to 3 or 4 mechanics. Two who work for a Chevrolet dealer. They told me that changing the oil regularly (about 4 to 5k miles on full synthetic which is what the manual calls for) will keep the chain running smooth.
Fuel mileage is good at about 22 on the interstate. Ride is comfortable.
Beautiful car, but hasn't been reliable.
2012 Chevrolet TraverseJennifer Watkins - louisville, TN06/10/2016
We have had our car for 4 months and have had to already put $1,000 into it for repairs. The a/c condenser in the rear air went out a week before vacation. While on vacation the transmission started acting up and shifting hard. Also, the right front strut is going to need to be replaced. We sold my 4runner so that we could buy a newer vehicle with less mileage to avoid having problems that an older vehicle has. This car barely had over 50k and all of these problems already. I would expect it with an older car, but not this new. Disappointed to say the least.
