I owned a 2009 for two years. Just sold last week. Hallelujah!
Nonetheless, the Traverse drives and handles like a minivan. The plastic around and on the doors
interior was already beginning to wear. Wires to a box located under driver's seat were loose and caused the "service airbag" light to display.
Worst of all, there is no spare on the LS model. Instead, Chevy equips this vehicle with a mini air pump and some flat tire fixer. Not cool if the tire has a hole in it.
The middle row of seats vibrated horribly. The 3rd row wasn't an issue.
Glad to be rid of it. No more American made cars for me.
Hidden compartment in back; console in dash; sliding second row; privacy glass; lots of air vents.
Address shaking of second row. Spare tire on all models.
