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

Review

We bought our traverse in June2009. The headrests are very uncomfortable and force a short person to keep their head bowed if they don't put a pillow behind their back. My husband has nearly wrecked it three times when trying to make a left hand turn due to the poor visibility when looking to the right to see if another vehicle is coming. It is hard to park because you cannot see the front end and it's very hard to back up due to the small window and the many blind spots along the sides (we have the economy model). The gas mileage is awful. We took a long trip and the highway mpg never got above 18 mpg. My biggest concern is safety. It is an accident waiting to happen.

Suggested Improvements

Headrests need to be able to be removed or turned backwards. Backup camera needs to standard on all models. Something needs to be changed to improve the gas mileage. My old beat up van gets 22 in town. The frame support between the windshield and the front doors causes lg dangerous blind spot.
