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.
Prefer over Pilot
2015 Chevrolet TraverseShawn Rushton - Westminster, CO06/13/2016
I bought the Traverse to replace my 2014 Honda Pilot. I was looking for an 8 seat SUV with s similar overall size to my Honda Pilot, but with some additional legroom for my growing kids. There is a noticeable amount of increased leg room in all rows, with the 3rd row being much better than the Pilot. This was my biggest reason for going for the Traverse.
The Traverse, AWD version, has increased towing capacity over the Pilot as well. I also like the infotainment system better than what I had in the 2014 Pilot.
Fit for purpose

Good workhorse. if there were front sensors and a more tactile info system I would change rating from good to great. We also have a Mercury Mountaineer and a Porsche - my wife prefers the Traverse LTZ
