After One-Year, Very Happy w/Purchase
By murdoughnut on


2012 Chevrolet Traverse LT 4dr SUV w/1LT (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


The Good: Space (lots of it). Have fit five adults, two infants in car seats, a dog and a stroller in the car before. Cargo area is plenty big, even with the third row up; While heavy on acceleration, actually turns quite nimbly for its size; Comfortable ride in every seat - third row can accommodate a small adult for normal trips, and a larger male for short trips. Bad: Gas mileage (~17), cargo door not very wide/tall Overall: Would definitely buy again; this car fit my exact needs for something safe for my infant twin sons, large enough to carry their stuff, but stylish enough for a 32-year old man who refused to own/drive a minivan. Gas mileage sucks, but didn't buy for that.

Favorite Features

Cargo hold - space for a double stroller even with the third row up. Comfortable to drive - feels safe on the road. Feels heavy when accelerating, though heavy feels like safety to me. More nimble in the terms. Interior is stylish even if it is basic plastic. Seats fold and move pretty easily. Stylish looking car (mine is solid black).

Suggested Improvements

Cargo door could be taller/wider to accommodate larger items; Car sits a little low - nearly ran into high water on a street when I first got it, could stand to be a few inches higher.
