Pros: "Big, drives well, awd great in snow, loads of room"
Cons: "2nd row bench seat, rear visability,"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7
"Really like the car, but with only 11 3/4" in center of the 2nd row you cannot fit a child seat or even a child there. Seat buckles will not move. Try it before you buy it. Should of gotten the bucket seats. Really do not think this is an 8 passenger vehicle."
"Always wanted one so I got the loaded up LTZ AWD with Nav, DVD and dual roofs. Gets pretty good mileage, drives nice, have not had to deal with the AWD yet so the jury is out on that part. Used to a truck with selectable drive.
My biggest complaint is the interior. Three months in I noticed a banging noise in the left rear. Opened the compartment for the jack (that cracked on first try) and observed a electronic module loose near the rear hatch motor and tightened it down. A few months later a noise in the left A pillar that led to a service call. Dealer had a "bulletin" on it to remove windshield tabs. 2 weeks later, noise in left front of dash and drivers door panel. Dealer put tape on 2 pieces rubbing together and rerouted lock knob.
One month later, drivers armrest squeaks and queaks along with lock button "buzzing" Dealer says all are like that, nothing to be done except turning up radio to drown out all the interior noises. Very disappointed. Last but not least, both shades for sunroofs are the fabric kind that still let in sun rather than the solid kind. Put some "cling on" window tint on both roofs to keep inside from turning into an oven."
"The vehicle rides smooth and has plenty of room but would not recommend the front wheel drive version at all in any climate. It seem like the vehicle is to heavy for the drive-train. We are constantly spinning the tires on any terrain wet, dry, or frozen. Would only consider an All Wheel Drive Traverse "IF" I were going to get another one."
"Comfortable ride. Would be a lot better if the seats had a little more padding. Good Power and excellent features. I have started noticing a couple of rattles which should never happen after 8,000 miles. Not sure where they are coming from.
The one thing I don't like is that the windshield wiper control is inconvenient as is the separate button for the rear wipers."
