Do not like my new Traverse
By ldewar on


2011 Chevrolet Traverse LS 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


I have had 3 GM mini vans before this vehicle and loved each of them. I wanted to buy another mini van, but GM stopped makeing them. I reluctantly bought this vehicle as it has only a few inches shorter wheelbase. I do not like the look of the exterior, the console takes up a lot of space--no longer can the passenger get up and move to the back while traveling. I find the seat design very uncomfortable and my back is in pain constantly and it rides a lot rougher than my mini vans did. The interior is smaller, etc. I do not like the large wheels and I get lousy gas mileage (19 mpg Hwy). My mini vans would get up to 26 mpg. Wish I hadn't bought it! It is peppy on the highway.

Best Features

Don't think I have any favorite features!

Worst Features

Get rid of the console, make it larger and higher. More comfortable seats would be nice and smaller wheels. I want to sit up higher and I want better gas mileage!
