5000 mile review
By Upstate NY on
2009 Chevrolet Traverse LT1 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
We've had the Traverse about 5 months now and 5000 miles. No problems to date (hasn't been back to the dealer) and both my wife and I really like the car. I see a lot of posts about poor mileage but we have consistently got 20 to 22 mpg in mixed suburban driving which in my estimation is great for such a large car. My only regret is that I did not buy an LT2 or LTZ package to get some of he features like backup camera, power folding mirrors, temperature controlled climate controls, and upgraded radio. People who ride in the car are surprized how quiet it is especially the engine (hard to tell it's running). I don't think Chevy has gotten the credit it deserves for this engine.
I guess it's not a feature but I like the drivetrain, quiet, powerful, economical and so far extremely reliable.
I wish I had the rear camera, rear visibility could be improved.
