Great car for the whole family. Bucket seats are a must with younger children, and the third row makes it great for extra travelers.

I love the third row seating. It folds down when not in use and leaves me with so much room in the back. As a busy mom on the go, I love it and even change my baby in the back when it's folded down. Captain seats are a must. I wish it came with a netting that retracted to the back though, so I could easily pull it and attach to the other side so groceries don't get too close to the edge and I've lost a milk jug that way when it fell on the driveway when I opened the hatch. Some of the interior just seems cheap; for example, some of the plastic pieces have popped off and I have to keep popping them back in place. It's been reliable so far, but I did have to replace a part already (co sensor).

Great large family size car!

We had looked for months for a car that was going to be able to hold our large family of 7 comfortably. The Chevy traverse is spacious inside and fits all my family. The inside offers easy access to the third row for my younger kids. The backup monitor is great for parking. The hands free options for phone calls are excellent and easy to set up. The traverse has great gas mileage and displays the remaining mileage on the dash. The only problem that I have had is sometimes the screen will get stuck when I am connecting my iPod and I will have to unplug my iPod and turn off the radio screen to reset it. But that only happens sometimes.

Pros and cons of the Chevy traverse.

I have a 2016 Chevrolet traverse that seats 8 people. Although it is an SUV, it is still very small and nearly impossible for adults to sit comfortably in the 2nd and 3rd row seats. The gas mileage is good and it is not very expensive to fill the car up. I do feel like the car looks good but was cheaply made, and I can see a lot of things going wrong in the long run. The seats and interior is also cheap, and some of the plastic parts of the seats has already come apart. I like the car, but next time I prefer to buy something much bigger and more durable.
