2010 Chevrolet Traverse SUV LT1 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

The minivan had high miles, AC, door issues, and showing transmission issues plus we were tired of no tow power and also of 'mom' van image. Traverse is all the Uplander was not. Great incentives, design and features, dealer added bluetooth and remote start. We added 2-tone black/gray leather seats, heat warmers and DVD player as dealer after-market installs.. that's the way to go folks! Custom leather design for no more money and to my taste and better quality leather. Just wish center row seats were removable or easier to get to 3rd row for my teenagers.


Favorite Features

The overall ride, remote start, bluetooth, OnStar (already helped out with keys locked inside) and like gas mileage w/ interior cargo space. best in class for both!


Suggested Improvements

center dash and door trim is too thin and concerned with long term wear and need to make way to remove center seats for flex seat usage. also, roof luggage rack should be usable and not req. add-on rack parts to use... nobody told us when we bought until we needed on trip!

2010 Chevrolet Traverse SUV LT1 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I really like the car for its ride, looks and features, but my AWD is supposed to average 19 MPG and I don't get above 16 with 50% city and 50% highway. Averages 12 around town and 21 on highway versus the 16 and 23 advertised. And I am a conservative 58 year old driver.

2010 Chevrolet Traverse SUV LT2 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Plenty of room. Great for car poolers whose kids have backpacks. Ample legroom, headroom, and cargo space. We love the styling. The dash is a bit disappointing, as the RPM indicator is almost as big as the speedometer, and markings on the controls could be more user friendly. The Bose stereo sounds very good. We have the sunroof up front, and the kids have the moonroof in back, which they definitely like. All the room plus the moonroof give an open feel in back that helps on trips. My wife had to hit the breaks hard when a truck in front of her dropped a dresser while doing 70. It stopped fast and straight. We are very pleased overall, and feel good we bought American.


Favorite Features

Styling and roomy.


Suggested Improvements

Dash could be more interesting.

2010 Chevrolet Traverse SUV LT1 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Lt1, jewel coat, 2nd row captains chairs, towing pkg. Hard fought battle down to the cx-9 / traverse. 2mos of digging, reading forums, comparing. Arcadia, enclave, pilot, Veracruz out (between 3-10k higher for the same 3rd row, awd features). Had I more money to spend, I may have considered 1 of the others. Fit and finish was very good. Interior was good, but with power port to close to cup holder on console. Exceptional ride and responsive handling. Mileage hwy den-cheye @70-78, as advertised. 6 on exterior design, front clip has to much drag. Cheesy top rail design, good for collecting debris, dirt, and pine needles. If you're going to design such a rail, do so with a top cap! Otherwise ++++


Favorite Features

Responsive handling, with plenty of power to merge into traffic. Good ground clearance. Info center. Third row space, W/max space behind 3rd row. Rear vents for passengers, above and on the floor. Easy access/exit from 3rd row. Mileage as advertised. Very quiet ride. Affordable in comparison.


Suggested Improvements

Redesign "C" channel top rail. (Sorry, but it really was cheesy) A Top Cap of some sort would have worked better than exposed. (ie remove top cap insert cross rails). Improve front clip to be more aero-dynamic. (2 1/2 tons pushes a lot of air anyway)

2010 Chevrolet Traverse SUV LT1 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

tired of tired mini-van with no towing capacity... but loved the 3 rows of seats and DVD player and gas mileage of van. Happened upon the traverse and happily traded in. Added on everything but sunroof and backup camera...even 2-tone leather seating. Wife loves it and kids love it... and Dad doesn't mind driving it either!


Favorite Features

Blue-tooth and On-Star... and 3 rows of seats and appearance and gas mileage - 19-20 avg in city


Suggested Improvements

removable 2nd row seats, luggage rack either provide cross bars w/ car or provide slots for rope, etc. Also, seats could use a bit more cushion.

2010 Chevrolet Traverse SUV LS 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Terrific handling; quick response; plenty of cargo space for a one month visit across country. We've driven this car 2500 miles from Midwest to FL and back, 20 mpg. City mpg is 16. Console between front seats is problematic. Any plug into cigarette lighter blocks easy access to to cup holders. Rear view for backing is not good. Rear blind spots too big. We don't have that rear view option, but a friend who has one in his 2009 Traverse says he doesn't use it.


Favorite Features

XM radio, OnStar, handling, cargo space and easy drop down rear seats.


Suggested Improvements

Rear view for backing a real problem.

Review

I have approximately 2,200 miles on this vehicle and it is in the shop for the 4th time. Engine light comes on and car does not run properly. The dealer's service department can't figure it out, but stated that GM has had this problem on a number of cars. I have had similar problems with my Tahoe.


Favorite Features

Looks Nice


Suggested Improvements

Make a reliable car.

Review

Only have 1100 miles on this traverse so far but have not had any problems. We have 6 children so a minimum 8 passenger was required. Much better gas economy than the 12 passenger Express. Is my wife's car and so far she is satisfied, time will tell.


Favorite Features

OnStar, XM, Bose stereo, rear headrest dvd player, leather interior


Suggested Improvements

2nd row bench seat latch to get into third row. It WILL break I am sure with time.

2010 Chevrolet Traverse SUV LTZ 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We bought our 2010 Traverse LTZ Sept. 21st in NC and left for Nevada Sept. 25th. When not driving in heavy 50 MPH headwinds in Arizona, we average 24.4 MPG at 7 MPH over posted speeds. My wife purchased plastic storage containers for our clothes, which we selected the next days wear from when stopping at hotels. Both second and third row seats remained folded flat to maximize needed storage for 5 weeks! The ice chest for bottled water rode strapped in with seat belt across the two second row bucket seats. One flat tire in Las Vegas was caused by construction material & repaired by the local dealership. An oil change was needed in Texas upon our return route. We were very comfortable.


Favorite Features

Ease entering and exiting our Traverse with running boards. (My right hip was replaced 6 months earlier.) The power liftgate is fantastic.


Suggested Improvements

Lamp in glove box and underhood.
