Wow! Replacing a headlight.

This car is extremely easy to drive. It holds the road well and is not a walker. This car has lots of room for the family as well as plenty of cup holders. It needs to have more places to plug in phones and tablets. The exterior of the car is not built well. It does not hold up well. To replace a headlight requires taking it to a mechanic. The entire fender must be loosened and depending on the size of the mechanics hand may have to be removed entirely to replace the light.

Amazing family car and every day driver.

I purchased my vehicle because we outgrew my previous vehicle. It is easy to drive and has held up very well in the 5 years I have owed it. With regular maintenance, we have not had a serious issue arise yet. The captain chairs in the middle really make it nice when my kids are getting in and out and helps prevent issues of feeling over crowded. The seats are very comfortable and allow you to adjust lumbar, etc. for maximum comfort. It handles well in all weather driving.

Chevy traverse is a very reliable vehicle.

My car is a 8 passenger vehicle with third row seating. It's very good on gas. Its a 6 cylinder. It's very reliable. Low maintenance. I've have only had to do regular maintenance on like oil change oil and breaks and tires. Its don't have all of the bells and whistles on it. The only thing is missing I'd Bluetooth I think all cars should come equipped with it. Has lots of room when back seat is folded down roomy in general good for road trips with kids or just two people.
