Sharp looking car with tons of features

I absolutely love my traverse. It is spacious and is comfortable. I love all the added features like being able to start the car from an app on my phone or lock it. The big trunk space when the third row is down is wonderful (plus the added bonus compartment below). And when the third row is up it's actually very comfortable (wouldn't ride 10 hours in the 3rd row but 2 yes). Wish the sunroofs were electronic and not manually controlled. Performance is amazing. MPG not great but not terrible. Would I buy it again? ABSOLUTELY!

The auto-stop function is not super reliable. If that is a big motivation for purchasing this vehicle over another, it would be something to consider that it doesn't always engage.

I love the room this vehicle has. It allows us to grow our family and keep the same vehicle for a longer period of time. The 3rd row also has more room than most SUVs we looked at in the buying process. I am not too fond of the Auto-Stop function on the vehicle. Sometimes it engages, sometimes it doesn't. It's more of a hassle than it is helpful. I think it might be more useful if we lived in a larger area with more traffic; but to stop at a stop sign and then continue on it takes longer for the vehicle to move.

- Brianna K

Great features with a few not so great issues.

I really like my 2018 Traverse but there are a few things that make me not love it. So the ac does some weird thing where it cycles through or something so he air gets a little warmer at times for about a minute or so. The back hatch closes very loudly. It sounds like it is slamming hard. I do love the apple car play that is available. I also like the hidden compartment in the dash. Your able to lock it with a code that helps when valeting. The car drives very smooth and I think it gets pretty good gas mileage.
