Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1
"This car has had too many problems in the first 3 years.
Initially, the alignment went way out at 22000 miles. The water pump seized up at 50,000 miles. All maintenance was, and is up to date. Now, at 60,000 miles, the power steering is going out. There has always been noise coming from the suspension - and of course, the Chevy techs can't seem to find with it is. Power window buttons work when they want to. I've looked at them, cleaned the contacts and had the motors tested. Not sure what the problem is. It's just one thing after another. I won't go into value, since I live in Hawaii. Everything is over priced here. As far as driving, I didn't notice the visibility issues on the test drive. The A pillars are to wide and obstruct you view to the front passenger 45 degrees. The tiny rear side windows also contribute to ta huge blind spot when looking back.
Would I recommend this vehicle to a friend...no. Should Chevy redesign it and up the quality?...YES."
"Steering replaced twice. Transmission slips and shifts hard. At 33000 miles, entire front end replaced, tie rods, ball joints and struts etc.....
Power steering pump still whines and grinds, front end still rattles and transmission is screwed up........... This Traverse has been in the shop 7 times in just over 26 months.
Do not buy a GM product."
"Bought 2012 Traverse LTZ new in May, 2013. Impressed by looks - Red outside and Tan Leather and black inside. Nice appearing Instrument Cluster and center stack/console. Very comfortable and roomy throughout with 4 Captain's Chairs. Good value for purchase price. Enough power w/4.3L V6 & dual exhaust and All-Wheel Drive with 20" custom wheels. Good overall fuel economy for its size. Love the heated and cooled front Leather seats year round. Also appreciate the automatic re-positioning for Driver's Seat and outside mirrors - mitigates some husband/wife snarks. Rearview camera is definitely a revelation. Plan to keep this vehicle for a long time. Has been very useful and reliable after overcoming an original defective battery. Use Remote Start all the time. In summary car has been a joy to own w/purchased lifetime maintenance (Oil and filter changes). We extremely enjoy driving it looking forward to longer trips."
