2009 Chevrolet Traverse LT1 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Have owned car for 3 months, very stylish outside. Have LT1 version, interior seats are very nice though a bit uncomfortable especially for your lower back. No carpet in the back seats, basically a big floor mat latched down. I get 20.2 MPG. My biggest problem with the car is the location of the oil filter. I have changed oil on dozens of vehicles (new and old) but never had to change the filter from the top of the engine. There is not enough room to place a filter wrench on the filter, it took 3 hrs for 3 men to unloose the initial high torqued filter by hand. When the filter was loosened it went all over other components located underneath the filter. Otherwise a great car and roomy.

Best Features

Very roomy inside, stylish outside

Worst Features

Please fix the oil filter problem, I have always changed my oil if I would have looked at the location of the filter before buying I would have passed on the vehicle. Whether you do it yourself or take it somewhere, oil will go all over the engine causing burning oil smell & eventually damage
