Sleeper vehicle now owned for 19 months
The 2017 traverse is still a great suv. Now with 12,500 miles. There have been no significant warranty issues. The only problem was a front rotor that caused vibration. It was replaced. There are no rattles. Handling is very good . Gas mileage is great if you know how to drive on the highway. If the road is level and you are traveling at 65 I have had gas mileage numbers at 25.5-26 mpg. If there are rolling hills then the mileage will be between 23.8 to 24.5 mpg. I traveled from Twin mountain NH on 302 to North Conway NH at 50 mph I averaged 28.8 mpg distance about 29 miles. Adults sitting in the third report that the leg room is a little short. This is due to the second row captains chairs needing to be moved backward to accommodate child car seats, no problem if child seats are not in place. I have had no other issues with this vehicle. I still will give it 5 stars.
Tons of space!
Love the space in the vehicle. Rides nice. Easy to get kids in and out, even in the 3rd row. Great for families!
Stepped up to something bigger
I traded in my 2010 Equinox since the equinox had started to have some rather costly repairs. So i figured to get something bigger with more space. And that is exactly what I got. Compared to the equinox, the Traverse has en enormous amount of space. Even with the third row up, there is still ample cargo room in the back. That and passengers in the third row can actually sit comfortably and have plenty of head room and leg space. Since this was a bigger vehicle, it did take some time to get use to it. I have a narrow drive way and it took some effort to adjust to a wider car. Aside from that so far the ride is comfortable and acceleration is very nice considering the size of the engine. I thought i would be underwhelmed since the V6 i had in the Equinox made it very quick, and the steering was very precise and responsive. The Traverse is a little more muddy but not too much, i think that i am just feeling the weight a lot more then i did on the Equinox. So I feel the weight a lot more on the turns then i did on the Equinox. But not so much that its an issue. Its more something that i need to get use to. Over all I am happy with the Traverse. Since what i needed was a family SUV with lots pf space for kits and and entertainment option for long trips, the Traverse was exactly what I was looking for. The only thing negative that i can report was that when we fist got the car and took it on the express way, there was a noticeable vibration in the steering. We took it back to the dealer and that was corrected quickly and no fuss. Aside from that we have made some long trips and it has been great. Entertainment system is adequate even though i wish i would have been able to get one with a newer version on Chevy's MyLink. But these are minor grips since so far a really like this SUV.

The 2017 Chevrolet Traverse satisfies so many needs. It offers seating for up to seven or eight people and provides them with plenty of comfort and conveniences. Fully trimmed with options and accessories, it's similar to the Buick Enclave, to which it is closely related. With all rear seats folded down it has a vast cargo area. Yet the Traverse is more than a great big appliance. As a crossover SUV with a carlike chassis and athletic stance, it's actually a pleasure to drive. Ride and handling are exceptional. The steering is precise, and there are none of the mushy responses or floaty feelings you might expect from a vehicle this large. Outward visibility is excellent. Overall, the Traverse presents an involving experience and tends to make you forget its generous size until you're squeezing into the garage or trying to parallel park.

Just be prepared to keep the Traverse supplied with fuel. This large crossover SUV returns an EPA rating of 18 mpg combined (15 city/22 highway) in front-wheel-drive configuration and 17 mpg combined (15 city/22 highway) with all-wheel drive.

Although its Buick relative is a bit more upscale, the Traverse is far from being a poor second cousin. In fact, in upper trim levels, the Traverse can hold its own in terms of both aesthetics and content, with attractive finishes and many of the same high-end features. Other advantages to buying a Traverse include a comfortable ride and top scores in government and insurance industry crash tests. And though this big crossover's size and wide turning circle can make it a handful in situations like parking garages where space is at a premium, it's still much less cumbersome to drive than a full-size SUV such as Chevrolet's own Suburban.

As for 2017 model-year alternatives, the Honda Pilot is coming off an extensive redesign last year that included fresh new styling and a slightly larger third-row seat. The Ford Explorer isn't as roomy as the Traverse, but it does offer engine options that are more powerful or more fuel-efficient. Other recommended models include the redesigned GMC Acadia (it's smaller this year), the well-equipped Hyundai Santa Fe and the perennially popular Toyota Highlander. All are great choices, but the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse holds its own, particularly if abundant space is a priority for you.

The 2017 Traverse is offered in three trim levels: LS, LT and Premier. The Traverse LS is equipped with a more-than-reasonable amount of features and amenities. The LT, which has two subdivisions, adds even more equipment and some power-assisted conveniences. The Premier
i s a nice way of indulging yourself without drawing unwanted attention.

Let Edmunds help you find the perfect 2017 Chevrolet Traverse.
