Enough space for my family with the 3rd row seating. Great gas mileage and rear a/c and heat is a nice feature as well as seat warmers.

Overall:

Traverse came out as a popular model with big expectations. Major disappointment. Body style is ugly to the max and everything inside is just a plain Jane looking vehicle Ive been a Chevy man my whole life I dont recommend it. Id go Honda CRV maybe a GMC Acadia long thus got a V6 or V8 then youre getting more bang for your buck and they offer better interior with sunroofs and more bells and whistles Chevy too tight wont put it in unless you order it Im sick of Chevys finally Im going to be moving on Ill probably going back to Jeep that was the best SUV I ever had Grand Cherokee V8 13 miles a gallon although it without pull any Chevy in the blink of an eye. Think before you buy a Traverse thats all Im saying youll be disappointed what you see the same year make and model on the GMC Acadia put the Chevy Traverse the same

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

Overall:

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
