2013 Chevrolet TraverseJennifer Truitt - Jackson, MO03/10/2016
This is a great suv crossover! We were planning on buying a Tahoe or Suburban for the seating capacity. The prices were so high so we decided to give the Traverse a try. We fell in love with it and are so happy we gave it a chance. The gas mileage is much better than the SUV as well!
Good affordable family car

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.
