"I DROVE THIS TRAVERSE ABOUT 250 MILES FROM AUCTION VERY PLEASED WITH RIDE AND COMFORT LEVEL. CHECKED SPEED WITH GPS 100% ACCURATE I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS AUTO FOR ANYONE THAT NEEDS 3RD ROW SEATING. MILEAGE WAS BETTER THAN EXPECTED DOING 70-80 MPH."

"Purchased this Traverse out of necessity (3 kids). The wife didn't want a minivan or large SUV, so we were forced into the crossover market. Really happy with this vehicle, as it has an engine that's more powerful than most crossovers, has the option of second row captain's chairs (what we chose) or a bench. We bought the lowest model and had heated leather seats installed for about $2500. The fuel economy is fairly poor, but I'll take the on-demand power for city driving any day. The price was really good considering all the space and the engine size. The major caveat with this vehicle is that it's a family vehicle, but you're limited on the amount of places you can utilize a rear latch point for a car seat. Really aggravating coming from a crossover. Also, at least one of the bolts in the mounting assembly for the driver's seat has vibrated a tad bit loose. Why Chevrolet elected to not go with a locking nut for parts like that is beyond me. However, we haven't had any other problems and the Traverse has been a beast on our frequent 500-mile road trips. I don't know if I'd buy it again without my youngest being in a booster, but there really aren't many other options that seat more than 5 (including 3 car seats), have good power, aren't a minivan or large SUV, and are under $40k.All in all, it's certainly worth looking at."

"We got this in 2010. We have 2 kids. This was a great buy. Vehicle comfortly seats 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 kids, and that's not with the 3rd row up. Add that and two more kids fit ealy, not so much for adults. Cargo area is big, with 3rd seat down - not much with it up. Hanldes great as this is my 1st FWD. No mechanicle issues so far and at 89K miles. The only negative I think is the 17-18 mpg, wish it did better."

"We have liked this car but in the last year been very disappointed. GM had to rebuild both the engine and transmission (GM paid but we got the car stuck in another state while they did). I called GM and asked them what we should do about the car (we wanted to keep it but are worried when we have to pay ourselves)and their answer was an offer to help me make an appointment for repair. (by the way the GM call in number and email is staffed poorly - i.e. don't waste your time). Sorry to say as much as we originally liked car and this is probably my 20th GM vehicle this one disappointed us."
