2010 Chevrolet Traverse: Highway Speeds

August 26, 2010

I grew up in a Chevy household. You all know about my beloved Caprice and I probably told you about the time my father won a Chevette in a raffle contest. So, Chevys are very familiar to me. They feel comfortable. They feel like home. That's partly the reason I like the Traverse.

Also, it moves well. It's just as comfortable cruising at highway speeds as it is strolling around town. The engine doesn't wheeze. The transmission doesn't delay. It takes it all in stride. And like all GM products, it has a kicking air conditioner.

Check out this beautiful sky on my commute last night as seen out the front window of the Traverse.

2010 Chevy Traverse: Wedding Day Ride

April 12, 2010

Last weekend our still fresh long-term 2010 Chevy Traverse hauled four full-size adults to a wedding 75 miles from home. And back of course. This is a picture of two of the adults. Be kind, one of them is my wife.

By the end of the long day, which included a late night run to L.A.'s famous Tito's Tacos, we all agreed that the Traverse handled the task as we hoped it would. It is commodious, comfortable, fuel efficient and its navigation system was easy to program and the directions it spit out were accurate. It also rides very well on the highway.

One of the three passengers did complain about the Traverse's seat design, saying it felt like a park bench covered in thin foam padding. The rest of us like the seats.

2010 Chevrolet Traverse: Seats Like Kansas

April 09, 2010

Just in case you thought I was exaggerating, here's photographic evidence of just how flat the front seats are in the Traverse. Strangely enough, they're not quite as awful to sit in as it might appear.

There's decent cushioning, so it feels soft at first. But after, oh ten minutes, they start to feel a bit stiff. And should you actually go around a turn in the Traverse don't expect anything to lean on, there's simply nothing there.

That said, I've plunked down in worse chairs over the years, but given the price of the Traverse I was expecting a little more. And yes, I know the Traverse has no sporting intentions whatsoever, but that's no excuse. A comfortable seat is a comfortable seat.
