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.
Hate the car.

I have had to take the car to the garage at least once a month not more for some sort of issue. I only bought it sept 2015! From tires, lights, and a recall! You can not change anything yourself in this car like the oil or a light bulb. Everything is a pain!
Beautiful car, but hasn't been reliable.

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.
