A very capable family mover. Touch points in Traverse could be improved but, overall, this vehicle will reward its buyer.

Great For The Family — I got a great deal on a lease otherwise I would have chosen something smaller for better fuel economy. It meet my needs. It was great in the snow. The LS trim is very basic but acceptable. The window defrosters take forever because vent is center located and windshield is massive. Back seats slide which was nice for rear leg room. Stuff not overly complicated and where you would expect.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: bang for the buck

Cons: rear opening is not 48" wide for building materials (plywood, drywall, etc.)

Best Suv Out There For The Price — we researched all suv's with third row seating. the traverse was the roomiest and most affordable. if you want affordability go with the basic model. if you have to have all the bells and whistles you will pay for it. we opted for the basic model with only a couple options added, super happy with decision. I loved the safety features also, knowing it would protect my family in a wreck.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: seating capability, safety, roominess, comfortable,

Cons: none

Excellent Suv For Families With 3+ Children — So far this SUV has been great for hauling the family around. I look forward to taking it on long trips out of state and to the Lake. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. Feels safe, solid and nimble, and has more options than you can shake a stick at!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Ride is fantastic, stylish look, comfortable ride, fun to drive, double sun roof

Cons: None so far

Best Vehicle For Active Family! — I previously drove a Chevrolet Malibu and needed something with more room but compareable gas mileage. The Traverse has been wonderful and I am very happy with my purchase. We have also previously driven a Tahoe and the Traverse actually has more cargo space and equal leg room, overall HIGHLY recommended.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good gas mileage, very spacious interior, easy to handle

Cons: Normal sound system is not very good, would recommend upgrading to Bose premium.
