Great SUV - but mileage not great
By darryl on
2010 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
The 2010 Traverse AWD vehicle has been a good car for my family. We love the room, the comfort of the seats, and the AWD. We have gone skiing 8 times with this car and it has never slipped once in the snow/ice. The handling of the car is very good considering its size and weight. We have not had one maintenance problem or "noises" yet but it's too new. The 20" tires and the power side mirrors (fold in) are very nice to have. The Radio/DVD system are good. The nav could be improved on. The 3rd row seats fold down really easy (compared to our Odyssey) and it is nice that it splits (for skis). For the price I paid and for the features it is a good deal
Leather interior, AWD, 20" tires, looks
Mileage, I am getting around 12-14 MPG, 95% city driving and going up and down a mountain for skiing. I was hoping to get closer to 16-17 MPG. I will try higher quality gas and see if it helps. The Nav system is a little clumsy. They could improve the user interface here and make it easier to use.
