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.
What's not to like?

Our previous car was a Mazda Tribute SUV which we loved, but after inspecting and test driving the Traverse we elected to upgrade to something with more cabin space, more cargo space, more comfort, far quietly and more safety. The only thing we miss about the Mazda was the gas mileage and that's a small sacrifice to make in order to gain everything we gained from the Traverse. We have always owned Mazda in the past, but the Traverse has made us believers in American made again.
GREAT SUV, GREAT DEALER, CARMAX

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 ).

For families that need a great family-friendly vehicle, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans with third-row seats give passengers roomy interiors and still have enough power to haul plenty of vacation equipment or moving supplies.
