A little disappointed
By Nell on


2009 Chevrolet Traverse LT2 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Front headrests are VERY uncomfortable. The 2nd row (bench seating) can be moved forward and back, we thought this was great until we realized the the track it runs on creates a little crevice on the floor. We've lost kids DS games in there not to mention the "stuff" that is getting stuck in there. Also when moving the seat to get to third row, it crushes the mat on the floor, it does not accommodate for that - bad design. The car drives great on the highway but does not shift down very smoothly making city driving a little jerky. We almost bought the Ford Flex and are having buyer's remorse. Traverse still kinda looks like our old van on the outside.

Best Features

Back up camera! LOVE it! Also has lots of good front storage! Very quiet on highway. Plus love the "toys" - XM radio, GPS, DVD player - but you can get this on any car.

Worst Features

Change front headrest! Gives me back pain that I've never had before. Also re-think the sliding bench seat - that crevice - not good. Plus getting into 3rd seat shouldn't ruin your car mat. It's like you forgot that that seat was going to move. Car needs some tweaking. Need to recall headrest.
