2009 Chevrolet Traverse Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Traverse
Watch out for the transmission.
The 2009 Traverse is the 1st year model. It does have problems, the transmission has went out and the timing chain has been replaced. It has started to burn oil and the sensor engine light keeps coming on. We have to put transmission fluid in the gas to help this. The steering is having problem being really stiff a times and not turning freely. The body is in really good shape and clean up is easy. The colors are attractive. I love the car but hate the problems I have had/.
2009 Chevy Traverse review.
I purchased a new 2009 Chevy Traverse. This was my first Chevy purchase. I will most likely not be purchasing another Chevy any time soon. The main reason being that Chevy does not stand behind their recalls and warranties, and you the owner end up paying for recalled items. The powering steering column went at under 39, 000 miles, the tires that were put on the Traverse did not last 80k miles, the Traverse rolls 3-4 feet while in park. It is definitely not a safe vehicle.
Chevy Traverse great for families!
Has issues with the transmission. The window motors went out. The overhead light in the back broke very soon after I got it. The DVD player has a glitch and sometimes doesn't work. But I still love my car and would buy another one. It has a lot of room and has 3 rows of seats but can still fit a stroller in the back. It turns and parks very easily, like a car. The second row had an option for bucket seats which I like because it allows me to climb to the back if I need to.
Has had several recalls, but the manufacturer has serviced them promptly without issues and at no cost to me.
My Traverse is wonderful. It drives smoothly, is very dependable and comfortable. It has tons of room for a family of 5. It has dual TV /DVD players in the back of the front seat headrest allowing two different videos to play for each TV. Great for kids of different ages or preferences. Gets good gas mileage, and has a great sensor system for everything to let you know of issues right away. Also love the electronic hatch open and remote start.
Comfortable, seating for 8, and versatile storage!
The Chevrolet Traverse is roomy inside with fold down 2nd and 3rd row seats. With the seats up I can comfortably transport 8 passengers, and still have ample storage in back. My Traverse has been reliable with no mechanical issues. The only thing that I had to get used to is the rear seems wider than average; which means I choose more spacious parking areas. I also wish it had a better turning radius. But all-in-all I love this vehicle.
The car is easy to drive and can comfortably seat a family of 6 with one open seat.
I like that it seats 7 people and there are 2 bucket seats. It is easier to get to the back row. The console screen allows us to play DVDs. The connected screen for the back seats stopped working several years ago and we haven't ever had it fixed/replaced. The handling is more like a car, but we sit much higher. It has automatic transmission, and is easy to handle. I like the little screen for backing up in my rearview mirror.
Love Our Chevrolet Traverse
My Chevrolet Traverse is very stylish and comfortable. Cream colored leather interior, with heated/cooling seats make is so easy for long trips. The gas mileage is decent for a 3rd row SUV and putting the third row down gives you a great amount of space for hauling something. Ours has a bully in DVD player that is a good extra perk for the kids. Hands free navigation and a screen radio, also an added bonus.
It is great for small families, the third row seating really doesn't add much room and cuts down on space if you are traveling with multiple bags and people.
I like that the vehicle is roomy and holds 2 car seats comfortably for my kids. The back is also nice and roomy for groceries and traveling. I have experienced multiple mechanical issues with this vehicle which may be a result of poor maintenance before it came into my possession but it has really made it difficult for me to say I like the vehicle. Also the gas mileage is only so-so.
Comfortable, ease of driving, very functional.
Seats I am very comfortable. Lots of legroom. Has everything on it. Love the two sunroofs. Drives like a car not a truck. Easy to drive. Lots of room inside. Plenty of trunk space even with the third row of seats. Very reliable. The only thing is that being that it was the first year that it came out there were a few glitches like every new vehicle. Nothing serious.
Chevrolet SUV. Comfortable and spacious as any full size SUV.
Overall, my vehicle has been reliable. It does tend to have a lot of front end issues such as struts, arm control assembly, etc. The vehicle is good on gas and has enough space when we hit the road for vacations. I did have a problem with the transmission at 80, 000 miles which I was very unhappy about but it was under warranty and repaired by the dealer.
