Used 2011 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ in Dulles, VA for Sale
Reviews for 2011 Chevrolet Traverse
Very good but not great
The engine seems very strong and performs well. Acceleration is smooth and responsive. Transmission shifts quickly & quietly. The ride is comfortable without being mushy. (I owned a 1999 Dodge Durango so I am used to a more truck-like suspension anyway). The handeling is nimble, more responsive than the Durango. The cargo space is very sufficient for my needs. The instrument panel has taken me some time to get used to. Too many symbols & icons for my liking. I will need to spend more time with the owners manual than I had expected. The front passenger's seat controls are set too far back to be easily reached. I am not very happy with the fuel economy. So far, I am averaging about 14 mph in the city (advertised as 17mph) and I have not yet taken a long enough trip to check hwy mileage. All in all, because of it's larger size, I'm glad I chose the Traverse over the Equinox.
My wife and I usually get highway mileage that is better than advertised. We got 20 mpg with our 2006 Avalanche. We get 42 on the highway in our 2012 Prius V. We took our Traverse LTZ on a 7000 mile trip a few days after buying it. Two complaints. We were frequently driving where no road was shown on the Nav system and the mileage was terrible. Advertised at 23 mpg it was a major reason for selecting this car but we only got 18-20. Very disappointing and expensive. I believe that my Avalanche would have done much better.
I traded in my town & country for the traverse and I couldn't be happier. I loved the t&c w the dual DVD players, hdd drive, and storage however I had a consistent problem w the gears grinding. I was nervous getting the traverse although it seats seven the trunk space is a fraction of the size and no DVD for my kids. All my worries have been unfounded. The whole family loves the traverse. The ride is smooth and comfortable and it looks great. I wish this crossover had better gas mileage but I spend about the same as w my minivan. I'm extremely happy I made the switch and so glad I went to Car Max. Art was fantastic!
