2009 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
I have owned my 2009 Traverse LTZ since Feb. 2009. I love everything about it, except one thing. The bad news is that one thing was the primary reason I bought the vehicle. The Traverse is advertised as getting 18mpg in the city and 24mpg on the highway. I am getting nowhere near that. My combined mpg has been 17.4mpg with roughly 50-50 city/highway mix. This is AFTER driving like I am 80 years old. I have never owned a vehicle so far below EPA mileage estimates. This is ridiculous. Otherwise, an outstanding vehicle. I am getting 19to20 mpg on the highway and 15to16 mpg in the city.
Interior room, smooth ride, OnStar, Bluetooth phone, XM satellite.
Get gas mileage up to as advertise or change EPA mileage estimate to more realistic numbers so that more people aren't conned by the promised mileage.
