Do to age-related physical difficulties, I decided it was time for a new vehicle. I traded in my '05 Silverado 4WD Crewcab pickup for this "SUV", actually more like a minivan on steroids. First, it was easier to get into and out of than my pickup. It is an All Wheel Drive (AWD), so I felt confident about the occassional snowstorms we can run into here in New Mexico. Third, it has LOTS of room, and with the 2nd and 3rd row seats folded down, I can carry most things that would fit in my pickup.
The first thing I REALLY like about the Traverse is a smooooth, quiet ride. VERY comfortable!! We recently made a trip to California, and the Traverse can just eat up the miles. I was hoping for slightly better MPG, but at Interstate speeds of just over 75, I got an average of a little over 21 mpg. In town mileage is not so hot, often in the 14-16 mpg range. While visiting our kids and grandkids in California, we were able to fit the whole crew in the Traverse - all 7 of us could go out to dinner, etc. in one vehicle - nice!!
This was a former rental vehicle, and had less that 8K miles when purchased. Because it was a former rental/fleet vehicle, it was not equiped with a couple of standard features I would have liked, Bluetooth phone function being one (no OnStar) and XM satellite radio (I would/will convert to Sirius) the other. It does have backup sensors, but with a vehicle this size, a back-up camera would also be nice.
All in all, I'm VERY happy with my new ride!!

I really like love my car. It is super comfy for 1 or for 7. I enjoy driving everywhere. It it super spacious wheater you put 1 row of seats down or 2. I also love the camera that goes on when you reverse.
Vehicles with third-row seating have plenty of features for nearly every type of driver. 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.
