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


We have had 3 seated TrailBlazers, and loved them. Traverse was the next choice. As far as just driving it for my wife and I, we love it. However if you have kids and use the seating, not so much. The way the seats fold to get to the third row is not a smooth procedure. The seats ride on tracks that you have to kneel on to lift your child into the back seat. Very uncomfortable on your knees. Also toys, and small things get dropped into the tracks, effecting the operation of the seats. When you try to dig them out, you get grease on your fingers. If the rear window opened up (like the TrailBlazer does) loading would be easier. when you open the hatch, everything falls out.

Best Features

We do like the OnStar, the rear camera, sound system, dashboard features, and glove compartment space

Worst Features

Apparently the engineers don't have kids, or have to get groceries. The seat mechanics need a smoother design. the rear window could be openable.
