2009 Chevrolet Traverse SUV LTZ 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We purchased this SUV about 2 months ago and love it so far. We have been on a couple of road trips and it fits our family of 4 perfectly. It is roomy, drives nicely and the kids love the DVD player.


Favorite Features

Power Lift Gate, NAV system, and Black carpet! Cars built for families should never have light gray carpet.


Suggested Improvements

Nothing so far.

2009 Chevrolet Traverse SUV LTZ 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

The Traverse rides great. It is quiet, sure footed, accelerates acceptably, and has very good fit and finish. I would highly recommend the Traverse to anyone. I have two complaints. It doesn't always know what gear it wants to be in and will sometimes have a bit of an acceleration lag when you have slowed down but then press the gas (like when the light changes from red to green). I will press the gas, then press the gas some more until it figures out what gear needs to be in and will then accelerate excessively. The other complaint is that it is surprisingly large and takes some getting use to.


Favorite Features

The ride an build quality. The Traverse feels very solid. It creates confidence when driving around town and is smooth and quiet on the open road. It also has plenty of space for people and cargo...more space than a Tahoe and the third row is more comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

Six gears sounds good on paper and does make the ride smooth for everyday riding but it gets in the way when a little "performance" driving is needed.

Review

We bought this car to replace my wife's car, Honda Odyssey. After having this car for about 3 months we are really impressed. This is a well designed, comfortable car that we both enjoy driving very much. My wife likes it so much that she doesn't want to use it as our primary kid hauler, but as her car. Now we'll have to buy another car for the kids. Chevy did a nice job on this car.


Favorite Features

Interior comfort, features and ride, AWD, Safety features, 3 row seating, vehicle size, back-up camera and sensors, fuel economy, etc


Suggested Improvements

2009 Chevrolet Traverse SUV LT1 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I purchased vehicle after more than 20 years of Toyotas and Hondas. I am well pleased with quality of design and with build quality. I have had four months of trouble free ownership and continue to be impressed by roominess, comfort, performance, and ride of vehicle. I was somewhat skeptical of domestic products, but am totally won over.


Favorite Features

Back-up camera, dual sunroofs, well- designed folding seats, comfort, room, driving position, On Star


Suggested Improvements

A cleaner, more direct Ipod hookup would be nice.

Review

We bought this vehicle new. While demoing the middle captains chairs, the seat cover ripped. Took vehicle back for service and GM required them to restitch the seat....look like h... Called the dealer and they had to fight to get us a new seat cover..waited 3 weeks for callback only to find out the cover is on back order...tells you how many are ripping (poor design and build quality)...middle row flip seats are not as user friendly as depicted...had stain protection applied to fabric...got stains on seat...dealer could not get stain out...supposed to receive new seat cover....still fighting on that yet it is a selling point to the protection....SAME OLD GM>>>STAY AWAY
