The Chevrolet traverse SUV.

I really have not had any problems with my vehicle. It is reliable, performs well, drives great. It is very roomy. We have been on quite a few long distance trips and we are never too crammed. We have the midline version. I think it is well equipped for not being top of the line. My traverse seats 7 people comfortably. We have the captains chairs. Even when the third seat is up, there is ample enough room behind the third seat for cargo. When the third seat is folded down, there is a lot of room for luggage, moving furniture, transporting large items. It has great value for the price. If I were to buy a new car, I would buy another traverse. I like this car that much. It drives well and handles the road with ease. It has great pick up. It is not too big and not too small. Some of the features included on my model is, hands free Bluetooth phone, XM radio, onstar service and remote start. It gets good gas mileage for a mid size SUV.

Perfect 8 seater vehicle that holds up to everyday family life.

I haven't had many vehicle problems yet thankfully with my 2013 Chevrolet traverse lt. The car has had regular maintenance so I believe that has played a huge factor in how well the vehicle runs, we have replaced the shocks/ struts after 130,000. The vehicle gets decent gas mileage for a 8 seater. I love the room that the 3rd row has I am 5'6 and I can fit comfortably in the 3rd row. We have 3 car seats in the middle rows. With the 3rd row up we can still keep a jogging stroller in the trunk area. The seats have shown some sagging but I really enjoy the heated seats on both drivers and passengers. I enjoy having top air vents throughout the vehicle especially my rear facing kids.

Rough at first problem but then it worked well. Just had to start wrong.

I had problems 6 months after buying vehicle. It needed a new engine due to a piece of metal coming loose in engine. I had a lot of problems with dealer at that time. They were not keeping me informed as to the status of the repair. They only gave me a rental for 5 days yet I was without a vehicle for 7 weeks. After that issue, I cannot complain about the car. It has had its normal wear and tear. I know have 145,000 miles. Would like to keep it for a couple more years. Only other thing that I do not like is that you cannot change headlights and some other lights yourself. You have to return to dealer and it gets expensive.
