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.
Worst car EVER
2009 Chevrolet TraverseJocelyn Millsap - Excelsior springs, MO12/07/2015
I purchased this car in July realized it had no air conditioning had a rental car a day later then realized DVD players and cooling seats and radio were not working properly. I had 6 rental cars in 2 months barely had the car more than a week in my possession. I will never recomend this car to anyone

2014 Chevrolet TraverseEdward K Williams Jr - Fruitland Park, FL04/19/2016
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 ).
