2009 Chevrolet Traverse LT2 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
We love our 2009 Traverse but if you don't live in the mountains where chains are sometimes required you don't realize the problem you will encounter. Tire chains will not work on the Traverse which could pose quite a problem if you want to go skiing and you're not allowed to go up the mountain because the stupid vehicle was built so you can't use chains. What does GM expect? To be pulled up the mountain by a team of donkeys? I'm sorely disappointed with this flaw.
Use 16" tires instead of 18" or build the underside differently to allow tire chains.
