2010 Chevrolet Traverse: Dirty Seat Disease Already

June 18, 2010

We've experienced this problem with light-colored interiors before -- the Audi Q7 and Hyundai Azera for instance -- but after only 5,673 miles on the clock, the Traverse seems to be succumbing to seat staining earlier than most. Granted, its color is even lighter than most, but this is still surprising.

Nevertheless, this is a fact of life for most light-colored interiors and we'll see how easy it is to clean. I personally would stick to darker seat colors unless I was buying a sports car or something that wouldn't see a lot of butt-squirming, jeans-wearing miles.
