2017 Chevrolet Traverse LS
I absolutely love my Chevy Traverse! It is very roomy and comfortable. The Traverse fits 6 -8 people which is great for carpooling. It is great on gas on the highway. The third-row seating can be folded down for more room. The middle row seating can either be folded down or pulled forward for easy access to the third row. The backup camera is another great feature with the Traverse. It makes backing into parking spots and backing out of parking spots so easy. When backing up you can see everything behind you so clear on the screen and when you are getting close to something it beeps to tell you. It also shows lines in the screen also making it easy to back out or back in. This vehicle has its own Wifi which is a great feature when traveling. The On-star feature is also very nice. The on-Star feature includes roadside assistance and much more. They are very helpful. The traverse has two separate A/C units, one for the driver and passenger and another for the back. The driver and passengers can control both A/C units if necessary. The traverse offers plenty of storage space in the dash, center console and doors. The only negative thing I have to say about this vehicle is that I do not like the headrests in the driver and passenger seats. They are awkward and very uncomfortable. Other than that, my family and I enjoy this vehicle. We have two boys that are very active in sports and this vehicle has plenty of room for them and all their sporting equipment. We recently took a road trip from SW Florida to Gatlinburg, TN (about a 12 hr drive) All four of us were comfortable.

The Chevy Traverse is a roomy vehicle, with 7 passenger seating and plenty of space in the rear with the back seats down for carrying cargo and gardening items. I've been able to load large bags of mulch and topsoil along with other items in the back of my vehicle. The items that are disappointing about the vehicle include the archaic information screen in this particular model. For some reason, some of the features previously on the touch screen were eliminated, including Bluetooth options for passengers, etc., and some of the synchronization options. OnStar is available to provide driving directions in the vehicle and you can pair phones with the use of buttons located on the steering column. The location of the vents for heating and cooling are a challenge for someone that is my height, 5ft 3in. Since I tend to be a bit closer to the foot pedal, it is difficult to get the vents to blow cool or warm air relatively close to me when I would like. The cooling and heating system does keep the vehicle cool/warm in the respective climates. In the winter time, if I haven't started the vehicle with my remote start to defrost the windows, it seems to take some time defrosting the windows. I'm hoping that these few items are remedied in the newer version of this vehicle. If so, I would recommend this vehicle to persons that prefer a mid size vehicle for tasks similar to the above, as well as traveling families needing extra space.

On occasion there seems to be lagging or racing of the engine causing the vehicle to either jolt forward abruptly upon acceleration, or lagging sensation when pushing the accelerator whereas the vehicle does not move forward upon pushing on the gas pedal. The remote has wonderful features, I am able to open the trunk by pushing a button, the same process is used for closing the tailgate. A wonderful asset to the vehicle for those who are physically challenged or even for someone who is of shorter stature and cannot reach the button on the tailgate. Vehicle seats 8 persons. It is not designed well to accommodate 3 car seats in the same row, nor to place 2 car seats and an adult in the same row of seating. Air conditioning and heating system flows well throughout the whole vehicle. Driver seat and passenger have separate heating and cooling temperature settings. Hidden area which allows you to plug your USB/MICRO cell phone in for playing music, this is enclosed area so as the phone will not fall onto floor. It is also a great option as when Bluetooth connectivity is activated or it is in car mode, you can receive or decline calls through the radio. Text messages can also be heard through radio or dismissed. For size if vehicle, gas mileage is pretty good. Comfortable ride for long or short trips.
