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.
Great cargo space
2014 Chevrolet TraverseRebecca Vander Hyden - Huntsville, AL05/04/2017
We bought this car shortly after our twins were born when we realized we couldn't fit us + the dog + the stroller all in a sedan.
We bought the Traverse thinking that we would eventually be using the third row regularly. With the third row up, there's barely room for our double stroller and definitely not room for anything else. We keep the third row down and only use it on occasion when we have friends and family staying with us. With the third row down, we have plenty of space for everything we need to carry.
It's easy to install car seats in most positions in the car (though our car seats won't fit in the outer seats in the third row) and the ride is comfortable, even for our 4+ hour drives we've been making.
Excellent family car

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!!!
