Extremely impressed

I must say that I am extremely impressed with the 2015 Traverse LT we ended up leasing. It has a firm, well damped ride that we like, pretty good steering and drivetrain. The automatic transmission is fairly good at not driving us crazy -- all of our other cars have been manual transmission. The equipment we got was exactly what we wanted, including heated cloth seats. Interior is very well made and we love the color scheme. It is very roomy, even in the third row -- three adults across are an easy fit. The second row captains chairs allow us to have child seats and still have people get into the third row without hassle of removing child seats. Very good family car.

Surprise purchase

I actually wasn't expecting to purchase this vehicle. I drove a Pathfinder, Highlander, Durango and Ram1500 and studied the Mazda CX-9 and Hyundai Santa Fe. The Pathfinder and Highlander had horribly uncomfortable seats. The Ram was awesome, but ultimately the 8 seats and a better trade in value from my local Chevrolet dealer sealed the lease for me. Honestly, I only considered this as a lease due to reliability concerns with GM. We'll see how this goes. The Durango was my favorite, but the Traverse was the best value for the money (Dodge would have been $92/mo more expensive for 39 mos. The 8 passenger actually seats my 6 kids. By far the most comfortable seats of my test vehicles

I wrote a review shortly after starting my lease, and now after 20K miles I am even more impressed. I have been researching what to get next after this lease is up and cannot find anything I like better, for the price. I was really worried about GM quality when I started the lease and decided to do a lease as a "try-it-before-I-buy-it" approach. I have had only 2 minor issues: 1, a piece of trim came loose on the rear door and I only had to push it back on its clips; 2, a light by the license plate had the retaining clip break and was an easy fix by the dealership. I agree with some reviews that the infotainment can be touchy. That and the gas mileage would be my biggest gripes. The infotainment has trouble connecting to my iphone 6 at times, so I sometimes have to use the auxiliary headphone cord, but this hasn't been a huge deal. I really wish the gas mileage was better. I have an AWD which is rated at 16/23mpg. I am averaging 16.8mpg driving in a rural setting. This is better than my previous Suburban which was averaging 14.2mpg. The AWD system worked wonderfully this past winter, paired with Blizzak snow tires. The car feels very stable and handles well in snow and ice. Suggested improvements: 1. Headrests in the middle-position seats!! For such an important safety item I cannot believe Chevy cannot figure this out. The Japanese and Dodge seem to have this figured out. Right now I have children in booster seats so it isn't a huge issue yet, but come on Chevy, give me head rests for every seat! 2. Diesel motor!!! 3. Lose the low air dam to improve my ground clearance.

Top ROI for: Family or Big Dogs!

As an astute, savy car buyer who values 1. Safety, 2. Value (features vs. sticker price), 3. Technical Specs, 4. Size, I cannot ask for more in a Family SUV than our Traverse LT AWD, 2015 model with Technology Package & Running Board which we got in late '14. It has been through ice, snow, flooded areas, dirt, sand and everything else in between. It has managed well to navigate us through various terrains. But, it also handles the heavy traffic of metro Atlanta with all the extreme brakings needed from outrageous city/suburb drivers. If you compare spec for spec with the other higher-end German and Japanese luxury SUVs with Traverse, you actually get more from this Chevy. While the ride is unlike the German models where you can feel the grip of the road, Traverse on the other hand saves you $10k - 18k in the purchase price. I can easily forgo the joy ride aspect and put $10-18K in my pocket, frankly. I did an extensive research and comparing before selecting the Traverse. After all the recall issues were resolved by mid-2015, I assumed it was safe to reconsider this model. I was right. We've had 0 recalls and 0 mechanical or safety problems (knock on wood). Because AWD has a reduced chance of rollover and handles better even in the rainy days of the south we scoured the inventory across the eastern states and found it in a northeastern state with much lower price due to the larger supply there than in Atlanta. Also, if you don't have a family but you happen to have a medium-to-large size DOGS, this is it! Also, if you have a lot of stuff to haul in the back, this is it! The fold-down in the 3rd row is very easy and provides ample rooms for a big cage or even furniture/appliances, etc. When we sold our beloved Ford Expedition SUV, we were concerned that the Traverse wouldn't be big enough to haul things but we were wrong. We never had to rent a bigger truck for anything thus far. Lastly, I do believe buying American cars keep (more) jobs in America! Yes, it helps to buy American cars because I see that the majority of my car's parts are made by USA companies regardless of where they may have sourced it. It helps to keep even 1 job in America as that one job has a trickle effect in our economy. While I see the people around me driving the Japanese or German brands for the prestige factor, I don't have a need to boost my image vis-a-vis a car model. A car is a car: it's nothing more than a mode of transportation. At the end of the day, what's most important is having a car that gets you safely from point A to point B and you don't cry over the monthly bills.
