2013 Traverse LS Lover I will buy latest version someday but I'm in Chevy love.

2013 Chevrolet Traverse LS

I love this car. It is an easily navigable vehicle. Also nimble power steering makes parking a breeze. I like the backup camera which was useful when training nephew to drive. The seats are comfortable, and it has a real human sized third row split fold down seat and great storage Not to mention pretty good gas mileage. At LS level doesn't have automatic tail lift gate. On concrete there is a bit of road noise.

- Richard C

Spacious and trustworthy family vehicle.

2013 Chevrolet Traverse LS

I love how comfortable the traverse is and how much room there is all the way around. We don't use the third row seating but it's nice to have as an option. I wish it had a backup camera. We have had Trouble with the water pump and power steering. Our tire monitor system does not work because it has told us since we bought it that we have low tire pressure but we have checked it out and the tires are fine.

- Desire C

All the space you need in an SUV.

2013 Chevrolet Traverse LS

Good safety features, tons of seating and storage room without feeling like you're driving a bus. It has a back up camera and good sized control display, seats 8, and has rear AC. Gets good gas mileage for being a full size SUV, the display keeps track of oil life for you. Remote start to warm up the car on cold mornings works well.

- Greg K

The vehicle is fully loaded

2013 Chevrolet Traverse LS

I have not had any issues with my vehicle. It drives great and I love it! The reliability and comfort in the vehicle is amazing. I can fit all ( of our kids, my husband and myself comfortably in the vehicle with room still available. It is loaded as well so sunroof and moonroof for the kids to enjoy is also a plus

- Kimberly B

Great family car! Plenty of room, nice comfort, adequate gas mileage.

2013 Chevrolet Traverse LS

The alternator went out two times in a year. Great room and storage space for our family of four and all the activities our fourteen year old son and ten year old daughter are in. Decent gas mileage for our travels. This vehicle has plenty of room for me... I am six feet six inches tall.

- Matthew A

The Chevy traverse is stylish and comfortable.

2013 Chevrolet Traverse LS

Considering that I purchased this car pre-owned, I expected to have more issues with it than I actually had. It receives good gas mileage and is very comfortable to ride in, even on long road trips. Without a doubt, I would definitely purchase another traverse when the need arises.

- Sara H

Chevy traverse: great for the first 100,000.

2013 Chevrolet Traverse LS

The vehicle is quite reliable, for the most part. After about 100,000 miles, it seems to have a new problem every other week. Before that marker, though, it performs excellently and I would highly recommend it, as long as the vehicle is not needed for constant travel or rideshare.

- Peyton B

2013 Chevy Traverse- a soccer mom vehicle!

2013 Chevrolet Traverse LS

Third row seating. Power windows and locks. This vehicle is extremely comfortable. It's big but not too big and bulky to where you'd feel uncomfortable driving it. I love it since I have three boys it makes traveling to games or on vacation easier with all of the extra space.

- Stacy W

It served its purpose at the time of purchase, room for a 4th child.

2013 Chevrolet Traverse LS

There's 2 active recalls currently. Other than that, we have no issues. It is roomy and reliable. Gas mileage seems standard for this class of vehicle. The 3rd row of seats is a little cheap-feeling, but that is also common in this class. We probably would not buy another one.

- Amanda T

My vehicle drives nice but it could have been made a little smaller.

2013 Chevrolet Traverse LS

This vehicle is put together like legos parts... connect the dots. The parts keep coming off. The AC unit is horrible and the vehicle itself is too cumbersome. On the good side, It drives well and picks up pace nicely on the highway. It has a standard mode as well.

- Joy B

I would buy it again. Very reliable. Great gas mileage.

2013 Chevrolet Traverse LS

16 to 18 mpg city, 18 to 23 highway mpg. Very easy to handle, winter driving is great. I wish the airbag could be shut off for the front passenger side. Drivers seat is comfortable but the others are not. 3rd row seat is only big enough for kids, not adults.
