It saves me over $600 a month on gas. I love the electric & gas option. With a 10 gallon tank I fill up about every 4-6 weeks which costs about $20! The electric vehicle qualified me for discounts on my car insurance & my household electricity bill! It's solid feel & traction control make me feel safe & always in control.
This car has been the worst vehicle I've ever owned. I've had to have it towed multiple times because of engine issues, fluid leaking etc.. Currently the vehicle is being worked on to repair the same engine issues it had a year and a half ago. There are MULTIPLE known issues with the 2009 Traverse with there being a GM warranty in place to cover those issues even though the car is so old. Luckily I got the extended warranty when I purchased the vehicle and that has covered non known issues but I've still had to pay a $100 deductible each time. Est. the warranty company has paid more than $10k in repairs on this car since 2015. The 09 GMC Acadia is the sister of the Traverse and has the same issues. I would avoid this car like the plague.
I bought the red car which was not my first choice, but what they had with the amenities and accessories that I wanted. So my husband talked me into it. I love it, the red is a beautiful color the interior is goldish tan and black inside and looks very classy. It's easy to clean also. It's the easiest car to drive I pull it in my garage and plug it in overnight and it's fully charged every morning. I get a full commute 22 miles each way on one full charge. It saves me 75 to 80% of the money I was spending on gasoline.
